Portable KShutdown 3.2

Lightweight program which enables you to shut down the computer at a specified time, as well as display a message or execute a custom command
Portable KShutdown is a software application that can be used in order to help people execute a command, display a message or lock, restart or shut down their PC at a custom time.

The upside of a portable app

Since this is the portable edition of KShutdown, you can easily bypass the installation process. As a result, unlike installers, it is not going to add any new items to the Windows registry or hard drive without asking for your permission first, and it is not going to leave traces on the disk after its removal.

Another noteworthy aspect is that you can run Portable KShutdown on the fly on any PC you have been granted access to. This is possible by simply copying the program files to a USB thumb drive and clicking the executable.

Actions you can choose from

This software tool enables you turn off, restart, hibernate, sleep or log off the computer, as well as simply lock the screen, show a custom message or execute a user-defined command. All of these operations can be set up to take place at a specified date and time, after a certain input period of inactivity, when a selected app is closed or after a countdown timer expires.

Options you can tweak

In addition to that, you should know that it is possible to protect this utility by inputting a password. It is possible to render it non-obtrusive by sending it to the system tray with just a click of the button, while you can set up the tool to ask for confirmation before launching an action.

Conclusion and evaluation

Portable KShutdown does not burden the system’s performance, as it does not require a large amount of resources is order to run properly. The interface is friendly to all types of users, all tasks are performed in a timely manner and there are sufficient options to keep you busy for quite a while. We did not pick up on any errors or crashes in our tests.
