Auto Shutdown Genius provides users with an innovative way to monitor and control the hows and whens of computer shutdowns. This program offers a wide selection of choices that can help customize every user's system.
This program has a very scientific-looking interface. The CPU usage monitor, similar to a heart monitor in a hospital, instantly jumps off the screen. A spiking green line shows a real-time reading of what percentage of the hard drive is being used. Above this area is a list of commands users have operating with the Auto Shutdown Genius, as well as a table of commands above that.
Setting up this program is simple and surprisingly flexible. The key to operating your shutdown is the Task button. Here you can customize every aspect of this program. Users are given a choice between shutting the computer down daily, weekly, monthly, once, when idle, or when usage hits a certain point. From there, users can set the specific times each day or point of usage that trips the task. Tasks range from shutting down, restarting, logging out, hibernating, going to standby, turning monitor off, locking work station, or starting screensaver.
There is a short 10-day trial, but most will still be able to get a sense of this program's capabilities. We highly recommend Auto Shutdown Genius for users looking for an intuitive, reliable way to shutdown their computers. Its simple display and easy settings make this a great choice for a variety of users.
With Auto Shutdown Genius, you can automatically shutdown, power off, log off, lock workstation, hibernate, stand by or screen save your computers at schedule date and time, when the computer is idle or when excessive CPU usage. Auto Shutdown Genius gives you different ways to schedule the shutdown events, such as daily, weekly, only once, the computer idle, and CPU usage. During the shutdown, it can clean up temporary files and recycle bin to improve system performance and protect your privacy.
