ummmm.

Yeah.

This should work, off the top of my head. Copy one of the screensaver to your desktop, and replace it with a bat file that was compiled into an exe file.
This is the bat file:

shutdown -s -t 7200

Now put that in the windows folder where your screensavers are....

And that should do it. Windows will run the screensaver not knowing it is a different executable, which is a bat file converted...


Hit da thx but0n noa.
