    Set Thinstation Shutdown time

    Hi,

    I would like it so all my thinstation machines shut down at say 18:00. I know you have the option to have a timeout when it has been disconnected for a certain amount of time.

    Thanks

    I looked into this a while back. I think you need to build another image and set a shutdown time in cron, and make sure NTP works!

    I just googled and they say make sure the acpi module is in the build and acpi is enabled in bios:

    It's already shown in the sample configuration file:

    #CRON_JOB="00 20 * * * /bin/poweroff"

    Just remove the # and edit the time
