Editors' Review


Although Goodnight Timer promises to shut down your computer at a set time, it failed to do so in our tests.

The interface is bland but easy to understand, allowing you to choose a specific time or set a countdown timer for the shutdown to occur. There's also an option to fade audio volume over time. Although most users would probably be happy with a simple control to fade the music gradually, Goodnight Timer offers two options (linear and exponential). It also includes a simple graph that charts your selected volume control options, which seems like more information than is necessary.

While Goodnight Timer's audio controls proved effective, the program consistently failed to shut down our test machines. Even when the program was set to force a shutdown, it still didn't work. Although offered free of charge, Goodnight Timer's faulty performance makes it a bad deal for any user.

User Friendly.
Quick Download and Install.
Does the trick


There are no cons for me.


The program worked as I expected. I like to use my computer to watch movies, listen to sleepy noises as I go to sleep, but I do not like to leave my computer on until the time I awake. So, this little software did the trick. I set my computer to shut down in four hours and also have the sounds on my computer fade out in 20 mins and everything worked just fine. Thanks again for the upload and its free..even more awesome!
