Automator Shut Down Workflow

Recommended Posts

Every night before i go to bed i put in a DVD to rip so I can have in in Front Row. THe problem is My computer almost never turns off because I have to start using it in the morning. So what I want is a Automator Workflow that will shut my computer down at a certain time so it will get a rest.


I tried using the settings in System Preferences but a message keeps coming up saying that Hand Brake has stopped the shutdown process. So i need something to close the apps and shut it down.


This is probably really easybut I'm really new to Mac and even newer to Automator.


THank you.

My guess is Handbrake isn't done doing it's thing when you tell it to shutdown.


Sorry, I don't have the Automator expertise to answer your question, but I almost never shut my machines down anyway. There are enough updates nowadays to just reboot occasionally.
