Shut It is a program used to schedule system power-down commands, for example: Shutdown, Reboot, Logoff, Standby and Hibernate. The user sets a time upon which these commands must be actioned by the system. Two types of countdown timer modes are available i.e. COUNTDOWN or SPECIFIC TIME. The COUNTDOWN mode involves setting a time limit for example 10 or 20 minutes or 1 hour. When the timer runs out, the computer will shut down or hibernate or whichever action was chosen when the count down was initiated. The SPECIFIC TIME mode allows the user to set a definite time for the system to action a power down like 14:30 or 01:25. The program uses 24-hour timers as in [HH:mm:ss] notations. Some additional features are available like basic system cleaning operations and idle task processing and optimizing tweaks. When the power down option is selected the program will switch to "mini" mode. This involves opening a tiny countdown timer window with features to adjust transparency or to process the user's power down selection emmediately or to abort the whole operation. An icon in the taskbar tray area will also appear and the application can be exited from there also. When this tiny window is closed from inside then the main window will jump up again. The system settings that can be tweaked with the program are all basic shutdown optimizing tweaks and involves settings that optimizes the speed at which Windows will process it's various "power down" commands.
