Get one of those light timers that can turn appliances on and off at set times...

        what is that set times.....??????????

          in fact i searched with google and downloaded a small software called delayed shutdown by Alexander G. Styopkin. and gave it a try.but oops!!!!!

          it returned with the screen displaying "It is now safe to turn off your computer"

            oh god.. i never thought i would see such a quote in Windows XP!

          and my power light didn't goes off after this(attached pictures)

so you would go start-> run-> cmd-> then type shutdown -s -t 3600 which would shut down your computer in 1 hour.  It may have changed... I think that sp2 will default to minutes instead of seconds.

ah ah

        after trying some dozen softwares i finally settled for one called "shutdown"(attached pic)

          its really superb dudes just shutting down the the whole pc

          some softwares i tried caused some serious effects such as keeping the system time constant and all, but this one is a sure win over them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          thanks guys for replies............

Wow I can't believe that no one has suggested the low tech rock solid solution to this... Put your cable modem's power plug on a timer. You can pick up power timers for a few bucks at any hardware store then the problem is solved. The cable modem will be off because it won't have power.
