Greetings Sharipcheney!

Here's how to create a vbscript to run a playlist and then shutdown the computer.

First the code to run the playlist in your computer.

Here's the code:

set shell = Wscript.createobject("wscript.Shell") "wmplayer /playlist xps", 7, False    
wscript.Sleep 5000    
success = shell.appactivate("Windows Media Player")
if success then shell.sendkeys "% n

This code is use to play the playlist in windows media player.

Now you will add the code to shutdown the computer. "shutdown -s -t 0 -f -m \" & "."'

Visit this link for some example.
