    Media player

    Hi guys,I'm new to this forum...
    I'm searching for a media player that turns the pc off after the film finishes.
    Does anyone have an idea?
    Thanx

    Welcome to the forums.

    Not that I know of, but it's not something I've especially looked for.

    You could use something like
    Code:
    sudo shutdown -h +180
    to get the computer to shut down in three hours, then start your film. You can also specify a time, if you prefer. You could probably put together a command-line instruction (or shell script, perhaps) that would start something like mplayer or vlc with the file you specified, then run the shutdown command when mplayer/vlc exits.
    None but ourselves can free our minds
