Turn off Windows with a Timer

Our home computers are not empowered for longer uptimes. It is better to turn them  off over prolonged inactivity like night durations.  Perhaps you can hear some sweet music and then after the playlist completes, you can configure it to auto shutdown.  Similarly, you would be opting for Autoshutdown of PC after a download completes.

I found a few tools which helps us in these requirements.

  1. Autoshutdown by Ali Keshavarz : This is a freeware download from
  2. For shutdown after download complete, you can check out GetRight Download Manager.

In a way, this is similar to our TV Remote Timers which have Sleep abilility. Isn't it?

One Response so far.
