How to Auto shutdown in Ubuntu

Sometimes we have to go out from home but we are downloading some files, so we can’t turn off the computer in that moment neither when we are still out (obviously).

There is a command for the ubuntu terminal that is able to turn off our machine after of the time we indicate.

This command have to be used as superuser so we have to write before the command the word “sudo”.

Let’s see an example:

user@user: sudo shutdown +m

The “m” indicates the minutes that we want to spend before the machine go down.

If you want stop the process just write: sudo shutdown -c

For more information about this command write in your gnome terminal; shutdown –help.
