Trouble with cron

I'm having trouble using cron on cygwin.

I just installed cron using setup.exe.  It didn't create any rc.d
files, so I started it manually by typing cron at the prompt.  (I'm a
member of group 0).  Although the cron process is running, it doesn't
seem to be running my cron job.

Any suggestions on what to do?  My goal is to get the machine to shut
itself off at a certain time (necessary to stop those late night

PS Is there a way to change the title of the cygwin window, like I can
type "title" in a cmd window?

PPS Please CC me on response if you can.
