The tool makes use of a straightforward GUI with LED display in order to show the countdown in progress. There’s support for only a few dedicated parameters, so the entire process seems nothing more than a piece of cake.
KTimer gives you the possibility to pick the action that you want to trigger, namely shut down the computer or activate the hibernation or sleep mode. Additionally, you may enable a special mode, called “Notify,” that displays a popup notification when the time is up.
What’s more, you can activate the countdown timer by specifying the time in minutes, and run the application in the background (the process can be terminated via Task Manager).
A smart feature bundled in this program allows you to monitor a user-defined process and automatically activate the desired action when the process is ended. Rookies may take advantage of the simple-to-configure settings and configure the entire process in no time.
Tests have shown that the app carries out a task quickly. It leaves a minimal footprint on system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.
All in all, KTimer proves to be a simplistic piece of software that comprises limited features for helping you shut down the computer or activate the hibernation or sleep mode with the aid of a countdown timer.
