    There is a solution, use Windows "Task Scheduler" Start=>All Progs=>Accessories=>System Tools=>Task Scheduler. Then set trigger on idle and task run program put my attachment as program.

    RENAME ATTACHMENT TO shutdown.bat NOT shutdown.exe as it is now. Btw I just thought up this method so you could probs do it other easier ways :p
