how can program automatic shutdown of my computer? :\ I am using OpenSuse-11.1
A cron job will do it.
Is this overkill? I wrote it because Gnome startup failed for me a couple of times so I thought I’d play safe when shutting down from a cronjob.
#!/bin/sh # # Do a gnome session logout before shutting down. # # The timeout used for this popup is arbitrary. xmessage -timeout 60 -center -buttons OK:0,Cancel:2 "Power Off PC?" if $? == 0 ] ; then # Request shutdown _before_ logout commences. # Allow enough time for logout to take place. # Allow enough time for atd one-minute resolution. echo "sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now" | at now+3min # Dialog appears with a built-in one minute timeout. # Cancelling logout in dialog does not cancel shutdown. # Cancelling shutdown with atq/atrm does not require sudo. # This script is done as soon as the dialog appears. gnome-session-save --kill fi # # Done. #
If you are not experienced user here it is:
KDE3 uses kshutdown,
KDE4 uses kde4-kshutdown
gnome uses gshutdown (it is version 0.2 and I don’t know is it stable enough)
it opened an editor, and I typed:
*/5 * * * * /sbin/init 0
To shutdown my PC 5 minutes after starting up
;)Thank you very much!!!
