Shutdown

Shutdown, restart, sleep!

Shutdown performs a delayed auto system power off after a certain time has passed.

This ultra-small app shuts your computer off automatically after a given period (max. 24 hours). Or, have your pc go to sleep, or restart after a while. No need to use a keyboard! Shutdown is designed specifically so that the timer can be set just using a mouse or touch. Great for those extra lazy moments in which you do not want to look for your keyboard, e.g. in the dark during movie-time.

Typical Usage

  • During a movie you doze off, and do not want to risk being woken up by some action going on, e.g. a bit later on or by the next movie in your playlist. Solution: Use Shutdown and set the timer to the duration of the movie and relax: Your pc will be shut down automatically after the movie.
  • Say: you’re running late for coffee with friends, but you’re still copying a bunch of files. Set the timer long enough so the computer will be auto shut down when you’re away, all files copied. Super productive!
  • You prefer to have your pc or tablet sleep after the timer expires. Or, to have it restart instead of shut down. These options are possible as well.

Features

  • Automatically shut down your computer after a certain time has passed. Or, restart or sleep, whatever you need!
  • Shutdown is a super tiny app: just a bit of memory and storage is sufficient to automatically shut down your system!
  • No administrator privileges needed (though your user needs sufficient ‘standard’ rights to shut down the computer)
  • Easy to use and understand
  • No need to use a keyboard!
  • What you see is what you get, no further in-app purchases!
  • Automatically shutdown or restart your pc, or let it go to sleep after a set time.
