Editors' review

Though this tiny program automates shutdown operations and process terminations, it doesn't always perform as expected. OffTimer's basic interface displays only two tabs. In the first, you can shut down, reboot, or log off at a scheduled time or by using a countdown timer. You can choose a process from the second tab and use either of the two methods to set termination time, followed by no action or a system-shutdown action. The Processes tab also includes an option to run a program. Buttons across the bottom let you terminate a process or run a shutdown command immediately, and reset or exit the program. OffTimer's shutdown operations worked fine during our testing, but the program wasn't always as effective managing processes and occasionally executed the wrong action. Even though anyone can use this simple five-day trial application, it's easily outclassed by the plethora of more functional applications available, including some freeware options.
