There are situations when you might need to set your computer to power off automatically. Even though your operating system does not provide such an option, there are various applications that can aid you. Shutdown Timer is a tool that allows you to schedule power-related actions on your computer.

Intuitive interface lets you quickly accommodate

The user interface of the program is clean and easy to use by both rookies and experts. Six buttons allow you to view date and time, CPU and memory, system inactivity, networking, processes, as well as a wake up timer.

Create tasks with various functions

You can initiate commands for shutdown, restart, hibernate, sleep or you can put just the monitor to sleep, log off, lock and open a specific file or program, but you can also open a web page.

The first thing you need to do is add a task. You can set the application to activate a power, system or software option when you select a date and time, or when the system has been idle for more than a certain number of minutes.

Trigger the system to power on at a given date

Plus, a shutdown sequence (or other type of action) can be set when the download or upload is above or below a certain speed, or when a selected process is running or not and you can also wake up the system at a given date and time.

Protect your settings with a password

In the 'Settings' menu, you can configure Shutdown Timer to force close applications on actions, remember the options you select in the program, automatically activate a specific profile and run at system startup, but you can also password-protect the software and change the interface appearance.

Clever hour adjustment options

Additionally, you must enter time in the 24-hour clock format to schedule a task (although current time is displayed in the 12-hour clock format). Please note that sometimes Shutdown Timer cannot run a task on the same date that you schedule it (it says the date has already gone by).

In conclusion

All in all, Shutdown Timer is one of the most advanced software solutions out there when it comes to scheduling computer shutdown sequences and it surely deserves a try. It takes incredibly little time to get used to its features and can come in handy in a large variety of circumstances.
