Shutdown your computer with a countdown timer!

Remote Shutdown tool
Simply go to Start > Run > type in cmd and then click OK
Then type in shutdown -s -t 60 to shut it down in 60 seconds.
Change '60' to another number for longer periods of time, e.g. 1800 seconds = 30 minutes
You can also do logoff and restart. Check out other options by typing in shutdown /? instead.
e.g. for logoff, replace -s with -l and -r for restart.
It's such a cool feature, now I can leave my computer on for a little while during my time at school to finish downloads! Yeah!
