    Not on fail windows..

    in a UNIX like system however, you'd just need to run:

    btdownloadcurses <file.*******> && sudo shutdown -p now

    ^that is, if you have bit-******* installed for CLI^

    limewire lets you do it but i dont think bit ******* does last time i used it. Erm you can look at how long its gunna take and then set a shutdown timer using this guide

    Right click on your desktop
    Go to New
    Then to Shortcut
    Then type in %windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 120 -c "shut down"
    Include the quotes around shutdown
    Replace the 120 with the amount of time in seconds that you want the computer to shut down. For example 120 would give a countdown of 2 minutes and then shut the computer down.

    If for some reason you want to end the shutdown go to

    Start -> Run -> Type in "shutdown -a" without the quotes.


    Hope this helps

    That wouldnt work for ******* downloads though, seeing as you dont really know when the ******* is going to finish, you only have an estimated time. And plus if the download speed changes, the time until it finishes can change dramatically.
