Auto Power-on Shut-down
Depending on the task you are running on your PC you might not have enough time to wait for it to finish in order to power it off and your operating system can't automatically do this. Luckily, there is an abundance of applications specialized to let you schedule your computer's power options and when it comes to Auto Power-on Shut-down, features stretch even more.
Assuring you it perfectly works
Going through the setup process only takes several seconds and once this is done, you are prompted by a message to test whether or not the application can automatically power your machine back on. After a successful test, the main window is brought up.
Intuitive interface makes it easy to use
The provided interface is plain simple and incredibly easy to use by beginners and experts alike. Most space is taken up by a list where all created tasks are displayed, along with all there is to know about them and even the possibility to enable or disable them.
Thorough timing of tasks
Scheduling a new task brings up a new window with a breathtaking amount of configurable settings. You can attribute a title to the current task, set it to trigger once at a given date or make it recurrent by various criteria, as well as the possibility to set a time and how often to repeat itself once started.
The second section of the creation window is intuitively called “What to do” and offers a wide variety of settings. Besides all available power options, including lock session and even power-on, which is truly capable of doing, there are some specialized commands that can be issued.
Automate all routine tasks
Creating a task does not strictly refer to a computer power option, but can also be clearing recycle bin or browsing history, launch a custom keyboard or mouse macro which you can record on the fly, run an external application, open a file, visit a web page or simply have a custom message displayed when the time comes.
Keep your schedules secured
You can also enable the application to run on startup so that all tasks become available. For security reasons, you can even lock the current session while running and even have program settings protected with a password so that nobody messes up your tasks.
As a conclusion
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Auto Power-on Shut-down is a lot more that what the name suggests, providing a large variety of features enabling you to have nearly anything you need automated. It is so easy to use with so many features that it is suitable for both at home and in an office environment.
