Is it possible to schedule the pc to either restart or log off at a given time?  I use Windows XP Home.

The reason i ask is that I use bitcommet to download films etc overnight, which is fine but uses a lot of my download/upload allowance from my ISP. I have a relatively small allowance during peak periods but a massive allowance off peak.  As off peak finishes at 8:00am, and I am in bed as I work until late at night, i would like the pc to reset or log off to stop any down/up loading at this time.

Is this possible?

Any help appreciated

I would switch to either utorrent or azureus, instead of bitcomet and use the built in scheduler on either client. That way you can download at your leisure without having to worry about switching anything on or off. The downloads/uploads will stop at the scheduled time and restart at your discretion.
