Any good pc shutdown programs?

I've tried a lot of computer shutdown programs. But so far,I have not been able to find a program that can simultaneously,or close to,shutdowndown the computer & minitor when the system is left idle. Can anyone recommend me to a program that can do all that I just mentioned above?

Computer shut down option

Just use computer itself: open the Start menu, then click Shut Down button

Why not let the OS do it?

You don't say which OS nor which version you are using, but in Windows Vista at least there are Power Options you can select to turn off the monitor after a certain time, and shut down the OS after a certain time.
