Timed Shutdown is a simple and useful application designed to automatically turn off your computer at a set time. Timed Shutdown also allows you to schedule tasks like restart, standby, hibernate, logoff, and lock at the time and date you specify. It can be a handy tool to turn off your PC at night once a large download is complete or after your PC finishes a maintenance task, for example.
Timed Shutdown has a small, self-explanatory interface that gathers all its functions in a single window. To program a task, all you need to do is select an option from the drop-down menu and set the time you want this action to be triggered. You have two choices: you can set a specific target time and date for an action to take place, or you can activate a timer by selecting the days, hours, minutes, or seconds you want to count down to.
Once a task has been set, the application will sit in the system tray and will notify you when a shutdown or restart is about to occur, giving you the option of aborting the action. Additionally, you can set the app to forcibly close any active applications.
Overall, Timed Shutdown is an effective, easy-to-use tool to schedule and automate PC shutdowns, which can help you reduce energy consumption. The application works very well and is free of ads or additional software.
