Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Creating a .bat File
Open note pad and copy the given code in it:
echo Message here.
shutdown -s -f -t 60 -c "type a message you want to appear here."
the next step is...
Go to File-->Save as and save the file with some name and extension .bat.
For Example, I will save my file as mm.... Hello.bat in my desktop.
Now it will be saved in your system desktop. Create some folder and put the file in.
this file will now auto shutdown the system on execution.
Step 2: Auto Task.
This is the most important part here.
Go to "CONTROL PANEL" and to "ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS".
From there double click on "TASK SCHEDULER"
control panel-->administrative tools-->task scheduler
A window will open
Give your task a name(it doesn't matter whatever you give)
Step 3: Triggers Tab
Go to "TRIGGERS TAB" and look down for "new" .
Now look down for "Advanced settings" and check the box where it says "REPEAT TASK EVERYDAY"
Click on Drop down list and select the time..(Make sure you select atleast 5 minutes as this time will be sufficient to stop the task after the prank)
Step 4: FINAL Step
Go to "ACTIONS" tab and open it.
A window appears and Action list will by default be "Start a program". If not change it and in the "Program/script " textbox browse for the location of the .bat file which we saved already.
Hit "OK" and again "OK" in the next window....
The bat will now launch every five minutes, shutting down the computer and driving your victim crazy -- until you chose to reveal your dastardly actions!.
