Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for PowerOff
Although Windows comes with so many tools to control your computer, it can be a bit difficult to schedule an operation like shut down, reboot or log off in case you're not an advanced user.
This is the reason for which PowerOff was created. This tool makes the whole scheduling thing a breeze, so you just have to pick the task you want it to perform and the time to do it.
With this program you can easily set the system to power off, restart, go into hibernation, turn off the monitor and even lock the workstation at a specific time.
The interface is very clean and user friendly, with all functions nicely organized in the main window of PowerOff. A neat feature you will immediately notice is the ability to run as a service. You can even customize and save the settings to that service.
There are quite a lot of options you can customize, including the possibility to have a warning message displayed before the scheduled action begins. You can also select a specific program to run before a task starts.
PowerOff enables you to cancel a pending task and also features a remote control option, but, unfortunately, during our tests the latter didn't function at all.
All in all, PowerOff is one of the best software solutions of its kind and simplicity is the main thing that describes it. It packs a lot of useful options for users to tinker with and perhaps the best thing of all is that the application doesn't need to be installed on the system.
