I'm working an a small scheduling utility for my boss to use on our WinServer. While I'm at it I realized I could add an extra feature to it that I think he would appriciate. He has been Indecisive about weather to shut the server off at night or not. He doesn't like the idea of shutting the server down every night but he also doesn't want to leave it running after work hours with internet vulnerability.
Simple solution: I could schedule the network adapter to be disabled at 6pm and re-enabled again at 6am or something. That would be perfect!
I'm sure theirs an API function to do that but I don't know it. I've surfed the web a bit for it but it seems like a close guarded secret (I guess to minimize the threat of sabotage or something). And I understand. But I still need to know.
Could someone at least point me in the right direction please?
If you don't want to post that on this forum PM me.
