Sleep Timer is a software tool developed in order to help individuals shutdown, hibernate or restart their PC, when a specified event takes place.
This utility is portable, meaning that you can easily bypass the installation process. You can copy the program files to any location on the hard drive and click the executable in order to run it. In addition to that, you can drop the last mentioned files to a USB flash drive, so as to use it on any computer you have access to.
Another important aspect you need to keep in mind is that the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to get updated with new entries, and there will be no leftover files upon its removal.
Sleep Timer lets you shutdown, restart or hibernate your computer when a user-input parameter has been met. To be more exact, you can take the action at a specific time during the day, when your mouse has not been moved in a custom number of minutes or when a countdown expires.
It is also possible to view the current time in the main window, play and stop buttons, and a progress bar. The actions and modes can be chosen from drop-down menus, and there is also a shutdown button you can click if you run out of patience.
There are no Help contents provided, yet seeing how simple it is to use the app, it becomes apparent that they are not actually needed. CPU and memory usage is minimal while response time is good.
Taking all of this into consideration, we can say that Sleep Timer is a useful piece of software for people interested in programming their computer to close at a specified time or when an action takes place.
