Editors' Review

+

Have you ever found yourself waiting for your computer to finish a process so you could shut it down? Or do you find yourself leaving your computer on all the time, even though you know a healthy system needs to be restarted periodically? Auto Shutdown is a simple utility that allows users to schedule times for their computers to shut down or restart automatically. It's nothing fancy, but it's easy to use, and the scheduling is surprisingly customizable.

The program's interface is quite plain and intuitive, with a couple of tabs containing drop-down menus. Users simply select the action they want to the program to take--turn off, restart, or standby--and then choose when they want it to happen. The program has several options for scheduling; it can be set to take the selected action in a certain number of minutes, on a certain day (or days) of the week, or on a specific date. When choosing a day of the week or specific date, users can set the time down to the minute. Auto Shutdown also allows users to set keyboard shortcuts for shut down, restart, standby, hibernate, and log off. The program has no Help file, but it's pretty easy to figure out, and we have trouble imagining anything that a user might have a question about. Overall, although there's nothing about Auto Shutdown that particularly impressed us, we think it's a great option if you need a simple way to schedule your computer to shut down or restart.

Auto Shutdown is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

"A Clean App For Shutting Down Windows"

July 20, 2015  |  By B. Cunningham

 |  Version: Auto Shutdown 1.0

Pros

Earlier, I used to forget to shut down the Windows on my device and due to this, I faced problems. But now the problem has ceased to exist because I have now downloaded and installed the Auto Shutdown program. That this software comes free of cost is another benefit. The app helps me opt for the global keyboard shortcuts for various types of shut-down actions such as turn-off, restart, log-off, stand-by, hibernate, etc. also. I initially apprehended if this software would install unwanted aspects such as Adware and Spyware on my device but I realized my fears were unfounded.

Cons

No issues.

"No More Worries About Forgetting To Shut Down Windows"

July 12, 2015  |  By J. Green12

 |  Version: Auto Shutdown 1.0

Pros

I very often forget to shut down the Windows on my system and when I stumbled upon the Auto Shutdown program, I was really excited. I am now able to schedule the Windows shutdown and can create keyboard shortcuts for the shutdown functions such as "turn off", "restart", "log off", "stand by" and "hibernate." The app is easy to use and I can customize its use also. The tool comes free of cost.

Cons

No 'Help' File on the app. But the app is easy-to-use and does not have any minus points.

"This Clean App Helps In Scheduling Windows Shutdown"

June 18, 2015  |  By Stephen K. Braden

The Auto Shutdown software helps in scheduling shutting down of Windows and defining various keyboard shortcuts such as turning off, restarting, logging off, standing by & hibernating. When I installed the app, I was afraid if it would bring along any Adware or Spyware. But my fears were unfounded. I am happy with this free tool.

No negative aspects.

"Shutdown without trouble"

May 14, 2015  |  By Catherine D. Vallada

 |  Version: Auto Shutdown 1.0

Pros

If your computer is on for ages, it takes time to shut down sometimes. There might be some background apps running that need to close before it shuts down. This app helps speed things along. I didn't find much use for it. The auto shutdown helped my battery though

Cons

No cons that I could spot.

"Great for the computer"

April 30, 2015  |  By Kathryn S. Woody

 |  Version: Auto Shutdown 1.0

Pros

Yeah, sometimes my computer takes ages to shut down and I hate when that happens, especially when I'm dead on my feet and just wanna sleep. It's a great, simple piece of software. Works well and doesn't involve a lot of processing power or take up space in the hard drive.

Cons

Would've loved a cleaner download.

"Great! Installs easily; Intuitive, simple interface"

April 12, 2015  |  By DaveFromBoca

 |  Version: Auto Shutdown 1.0

Pros

Great! Installs easily; Intuitive, simple interface. Does exactly what they claim. I install it on all my PCs and my client's PCs because daily restarts are important to system performance.


Really simple, yet very flexible.

The program's interface is quite plain and intuitive, with a couple of tabs containing drop-down menus.

Users simply select the action they want to the program to take--turn off, restart, or standby--and then choose when they want it to happen.

The program has several options for scheduling; it can be set to take the selected action in a certain number of minutes, on a certain day (or days) of the week, or on a specific date.

When choosing a day of the week or specific date, users can set the time down to the minute.

Although I don't use this feature, Auto Shutdown also allows users to set keyboard shortcuts for shut down, restart, standby, hibernate, and log off.

Cons

None. None. None.

Summary

Great! Installs easily; Intuitive, simple interface. Does exactly what they claim. I install it on all my PCs and my client's PCs because daily restarts are important to system performance.
