Mac Shutdown X for Mac

By Tension Software Free to try

Developer's Description

Mac Shutdown X is an amazing small utility designed to shutdown the Mac after a big file download or at the time the user specifies or on other events. It can help a user start a download of big files over the net and have the Mac automatically turned off when the download is finished in the night. It is customizable using a easy to use setting setup panel (no coding or editing of script required). It's small, fast, simple and reliable.

The user can choose to shutdown the Mac:

  • On a scheduled plan
  • On a specific date and time
  • When a generic file is removed or moved on your Hard Disk
  • When a download is finished (dragging and dopping it on Mac Shutdown X):
    • using Safari
    • using Firefox or Camino or Netscape
    • using Speed Download
  • At launch time to use it via Apple iCal
  • Using Web restart

Mac Shutdown X is the successor on Mac OS X of our old Shutdown Controller for Mac OS Classic but has not a single line of code in common with the old Shutdown Controller. It is native and was entirely rewritten on Mac OS X for Mac OS X using Objective-C and Cocoa. The result is a pleasant, small utility that does its job in a simply and elegant way.
