  2. We give «New» .

In “New Trigger” we will have to select the following:

  1. We select “Daily” .
  2. We set a start time .
  3. Let it be repeated every day.
  4. We activate the “Enabled” box .
  5. Remember that we still cannot click “Accept” because we have to configure more parameters.

Let’s go to the next step:

  1. We enter the “Actions” tab .
  2. We give «New» .
  1. In “Program” we will have to write “Shutdown” (without quotes) which is the script that is responsible for turning off the PC.
  2. In “Add Arguments” we will have to add “/S” (without quotes).
  3. Remember that we still cannot click “Accept” because we have to configure more parameters.

Let’s go to the next step:

  1. We enter the “Conditions” tab .
  2. “Start Task Only if Computer is Idle for 10 Minutes” Enabled.
  3. “Stop if Computer Stops Idle” Enabled.
  4. “Reboot if Idle State Resumes” Enabled
  5. «Start the Task Only If the Equipment is Connected to the Alternating Current» Activated.
  6. “Stop If Computer Starts Using Battery” Enabled.
  1. In the next step we enter the “Settings” tab .
  2. We activate the following boxes: Allow the task to run on demand, run the task as soon as possible if there was no scheduled start, if the task does not run restart it every 1 minute, stop the task if it runs for more than 3 days and stop task running if it does not finish when requested.
  1. Finally we introduce our user.
  2. Our password .
  3. We give «Accept» .

Finally we will have to start the task , so we will have to do the following:

  1. We right click on the new task that we have just created.
  2. A context menu will appear in which we must click on “Run” .

In this way, if the computer is idle for 10 minutes, Windows 11 will automatically shut down .
