Shutdown Timer is an application that increases the functionality of the standard shutdown function provided by Windows and allows users to automate and schedule such tasks. The tool can work well in an isolated environment, on a single computer, but it can work much better in a LAN network as there are more functions available this way.
Shutdown Timer does not only shutdown a computer, as it can also turn it back on. The utility makes use of the Wake-on-LAN function integrated within hardware and this way, users can remotely turn on a computer via a closed network. This task can be done manually from a secondary computer or simply scheduled. Applications can be designated to run after this event.
Shutdown Timer allows users to also put their PC to sleep or in the Hibernate mode, among others. All of these tasks can be performed on a regular basis by the app if the script is built in this way. Users that are logged on the computer can receive visual and sound notifications minutes before the PC will shut down but this element can be deactivated. The interface of the app is quite simple and it makes use of tabs in order to keep things easy to find.
