Hyper Shutdown

Download.com Staff Mar 12, 2009

This simple little utility lets users schedule various shutdown tasks on their PCs. Though we would have liked to have seen more schedule options, it performed as promised.

Hyper Shutdown features a very simple user interface. The small window displays a list of actions, such as shutdown, restart, log off, hibernate, and set alarm. From there, all you have to do is simply enter the specific time or time frame that you want the program to perform the chosen action, and enter the number of seconds for the countdown warning. You can also select a file to execute before the action takes place. It worked without a hitch in our tests, and we appreciated the 10-second warning. The program's settings are minimal, and only allow you to change the beep frequency for the warning message or to exit without warning. Unfortunately, it doesn't include the option of setting multiple actions or multiple dates and times. You're limited to one action at a time, on the current day.

The program offers a Help link, but it merely takes you to the publisher's Web site, which lacks any real support. Still, for the price, this freeware tool is effective for hands-free shutdown options.
