Editors' Review

Even though your computer is still working, you might not want, or need, to be there while it finishes up the job at hand. PC Sleep is a simple tool that lets you shut down your computer at a specific time or within a specific time frame, so you can set it and walk away.

Installing PC Sleep requires a Dot Net Framework, but the process is simple. While it offers eye-friendly and mouse-friendly features, the small interface is designed to do the job as quickly and efficiently as possible in two basic steps: choosing the action you want to perform and choosing when you want it to happen. In addition to shutting down your computer, you can use PC Sleep to perform other related functions such as rebooting or logging off. As promised, a pop-up window appears before your PC shuts down, so you can halt the action if you're still working.

A minor issue with the tool's installation is that it will install a Start Menu icon without permission. Otherwise, it uninstalls cleanly. This is a simple tool designed to do a simple task. It doesn't offer any other bells and whistles, but PC Sleep works well and it costs you nothing to add to your toolbox.
