Editors' Review

This tool allows you to easily execute shutdown functions, although its primary features can be quickly accessed elsewhere on your PC. The toolbar features easy-to-comprehend, colorful icons. AutoShutdown lets you shut down, restart, log off, stand by, hibernate, and lock your workstation in an instant. You can schedule the commands and assign hot keys, features not available through the Start menu. Additionally, the application can warn you when scheduled commands are about to be executed. File Cleanup, which enables you to simultaneously delete unwanted files and histories and perform any AutoShutdown function, is an extraneous feature. Unfortunately, this software terminates all running programs without letting the user know all live files will not be saved. Users who want to schedule shutdown functions will save time by using this program.

    "works perfectly for me"

    Version: AutoShutdown 4.5


    You open it, set the time when you want it to turn of the computer and apply. You can also set it to turn off after XX minutes.


    after you set it you can't turn off or restart the computer normally before the scheduled time, so you must disable it first and then turn off or whatever.


    if you need to go out and leave your computer doing stuff and want it to turn off after finishing this is the program for you ^^

    "Do not use this"

    Version: AutoShutdown 4.5




    It does not work at all, when set to shut down at a preset time, it keeps trying to shut down; but in the end, it won't shut down by itself. I even used force shut down option, it still won't work.
