AutoShutdown Rst is a simple-to-use gadget that allows you to schedule a power management function for your computer, directly from your desktop. It can be easily handled, even by less experienced individuals.
The gadget's interface is based on a small and intuitive layout. The app allows you to shut down, restart, hibernate, suspend, log off or lock the computer.
By accessing the right-click menu, you can open the 'Settings' area from where you can select the action as well as set a countdown or time at which it will take place.
But you can also disable hibernation, add shortcuts to the 'Quick Launch' bar, set AutoShutdown Rst to force sleep for suspend mode and delete the added 'Quick Launch' icons, change the interface skin and configure the buttons layout (show all buttons, don't show the 'suspend' or 'hibernation' button).
Thanks to its GADGET format, you can configure some settings provided by Windows, such as moving AutoShutdown Rst anywhere on the desktop, making it stay on top of other applications, and adjusting its opacity level between 20% and 100%.
The simplistic tool puts little strain on the system memory and CPU. We have not come across any issues during our tests and AutoShutdown Rst did not freeze or crash. This gadget provides easy access to power management functions and is easy to figure out, thanks to its intuitive layout.
