Simple Shutdown Timer

Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, 8

(Direct Download)
(Portable Version (Zip, No Setup))

Program is pretty self explanatory. Put in the time and click start. When the time reaches 0 the computer will shut down and power off (if able to power off).

The program supports 2 command lines

Example 1:
SimpleShutdownTimer.exe /sleepnow

This will put the system into standby mode, no count down, no icons.

Example 2:
SimpleShutdownTimer.exe 02:30:00

This tells the program to set the time for 2 hours and 30 mins. and 0 sec. and to start the countdown.
This option allows you to run the program from a script without user input.

Who would need this program?

Well I made this program for myself and have used it for the last couple of years.
Basically when I am waiting for my computer to finish something up but I don’t want to wait,
I need to head to bed or work or whatever then I want my system to shut down when it is done.
I don’t need my power bill going up when I’m not even using my system.
So I set the timer for how ever long I think my system needs to finish what it is doing.
If I need to come back or I don’t want it to shutdown I can stop the timer, this is why I don’t simply
use the built in windows shutdown.exe, yes I can start a countdown but I can’t stop it!
So I made this and now I’m sharing it. It’s very simple and sometimes simple is better.
