after you have created this shutdown task, you can continue your work and downloads until windows vista reaches the time you had specified when you made the task, when the time you specified comes, vista's task fires off and starts to automatic shut down. A window pops up telling you that Windows will shut down in less than a minute(as shown in the figue below..). You can click on the Close button but that will just close that window and Windows itself will continue to shut down!
