KShutdown is a utility which can be installed within seconds and afterwards, it can provide users a number of features to work with in order to schedule certain tasks onto their computer. The interface of the app is quite simple and besides the main tasks list where the created ones appear, users can also access the task creation tab in order to assign a new action to the app.
KShutdown provides support for shutting down the computer or restarting it as part of a scheduled task, but more specific options can be chosen. Mainly, these tasks can be performed at certain points throughout a day but countdown timers can also be set up instead. On the other hand, users can also create such a task that will activate itself is the computer is idle for more than one hour, for example.
KShutdown allows users to create a task that force closes the computer but the classic processes can also be used. A message can also be displayed on the screen so that the user can prepare himself and save documents or close certain applications. There is also the possibility to define certain tasks through a DOS window as the app features command line support.
