Editors' review

Automate and monitor your computer's functions with Intelligent Shutdown, which takes Windows Task Manager to a new level. Using it, you can schedule just about any task, including shutdown, reboot, and hibernate, run at a predetermined time, or on a regular timetable. Intelligent Shutdown also monitors CPU, memory, and network usage. Also handy are Outlook-type reminders with several time options for scheduled tasks. Though the interface is a bit chaotic, it requires only a few keystrokes to navigate, since all of the features have check boxes and drop-down lists. We found stability a slight problem. The memory function caused our test machines to slow to a crawl, but despite that flaw, Intelligent Shutdown will work nicely for intermediate to advanced users who strive for automation.

    "Works good for 1 task at a time."

    January 25, 2010   |   By Ronaldwaddell

    Version: Intelligent Shutdown 1.25

    Pros

    Stays set on reboot

    Cons

    Cannot register in order to get rid of request at startup. I have only been able to execuite single tasks. Multiple tasks do not execuite, i.e., hibernate then startup the next morning. It will only do one task.

    "Great product, a little hard to figure out all features"

    September 27, 2009   |   By susan19492

    Version: Intelligent Shutdown 1.25

    Pros

    I don't have to get up at 4am to turn off my computer. I have free usage from 11pm to 4am and used to have to get up at 4 to turn off computer.

    Cons

    I think there is a way to set the time for turning on and off, but I haven't been able to figure it out. Just use the "countdown" feature.

    Summary

    Love being able to set it and forget it. Wish there was a detailed tutorial or explanation of how it worked.

    "This is not freeware! Why Not?"

    June 25, 2008   |   By Nibinaearr

    Version: Intelligent Shutdown 1.25

    Pros

    The program seems very functional with lots of features and should do the job. It has lots of options such as countdown to shutdown, idle for a specified time then shutdown, running once, and lots of others. It allows you to select a particular option such as shutdown, restart standby, hibernate logoff (the list is endless). Recommended.

    Cons

    The reason this is not freeware is because it displays a message every time the program starts which asks you to enter a license key. If you don't nothing will happen, just click continue each time. It's just a little bit of "nagware".

    "Just the program you need to do the job."

    May 28, 2007   |   By vande75

    Version: Intelligent Shutdown 1.25

    Pros

    This is exactly what I needed to shutdown my PC after a certain time. It works perfectly. No spyware and adware. No Virus. I have uninstalled many times while reformatting my PC, no problems. When you start the program is asks you to register the product. Nice of the maker of this program to allow full use of this program regardless if you buy it or not. Thank you so much. This program actually saves me some money on electricity.
