these are standard: consult your OS-manual on how to do timed
shut-downs (and restarts) of the system.

powering down the system will usually close all running applications,
so there shouldn't be a need to shutdown Pd separately (but there can
be other reasons why you still would want to do that).

i don't know why this is not a "standard" component of Pd.
maybe it requires priviliges that are usually not available to the
average installment of Pd? why?
