If you know that you often fall asleep while watching a movie on your PC, you should look for an application that can automatically shut it down without your input, so your computer does not stay powered on until the morning.
The application does not require any installation, so you can carry it on a portable USB device and launch it only when you need it.
The graphic interface is highly intuitive, thus ensuring that both novices and experts can benefit from its functions alike.
You basically need to activate the timer and specify after how many hours, minutes and seconds you want the PC to be shut down. Once enabled, a countdown is displayed and you can stop it with a single mouse click should you change your mind.
You can also minimize the application to the system tray, so it does not take up any desktop space, but its timer will continue to work. You can also set the software utility to automatically minimize whenever you close it, thus making sure the timer is not stopped if you accidentally exit the app.
Furthermore, you can rely on ShutItDown to quickly power off or reboot your computer, which can come in handy if you want to hide your desktop activity or any other application from any prying person.
Additionally, ShutItDown can also log off the current account so you can log back on with different credentials, or you can enter hibernation state.
All in all, ShutItDown is a nifty little application that can come in handy if you want to schedule your PC to power off after a certain time interval has passed. You can even reboot, log off or enter hibernation state using the same app, while it user-friendly interface will encourage all novices to test its features with confidence.
