Delayed Shutdown is one of the simplest application on the market designed to schedule a computer shutdown.
The idea behind this program is actually good, with the developer trying to offer users just a very simple way of scheduling a shutdown, without the need for any other configuration options.
Since simplicity is most of the time greatly appreciated and it was all designed to be user-friendly, the GUI is just minimal and only shows a timer and a slider for quick configuration.
A basic options screen is also available to configure the maximum interval in hours, but otherwise, Delayed Shutdown remains a small app that comes down to just one screen.
The good thing is that Delayed Shutdown doesn’t affect system performance at all, and that’s exactly what most of the users hope to get after installing it. It does its job and nothing more, so any other tools seem to be useless.
There’s however an option that could come in very handy. Sometimes, some of the apps running on your system may block the shutdown, so Delayed Shutdown needs a dedicated feature that could force the app to close and thus continue the process.
All things considered, Delayed Shutdown is the perfect definition of simplicity in computer software. It comprises a very basic interface, only a bunch of configuration options and it works so smooth that your computer may not even know that it’s running.
