Shutdown – added 2/27/2006

Shutdown shuts your system down, when things start going awry. When you run Shutdown, it will shut you down fast and without any questions asked. The utility gives itself Debug privileges so it should work with default user permissions.

Shutdown Monster – added 11/12/2005

Shutdown Monster is a utility to make your PC turn off at a specified time. You can set a countdown, type in an exact date and time, or even specify a file to check periodically.

Timed Shutdown – added 1/9/2006

If your computer is ATX (which most now are) then this program can be used to automatically shutdown, restart, log off, disconnect or hibernate your computer. You can set the program to turn your computer off with 4 triggers. At a certain time, after a certain time, when the CPU usage goes down or when you get disconnected from the internet. This means that your computer doesn’t have to be on any longer then necessary. The program hides in the system tray when running so it can be easily aborted. It also gives the option of a 5-60 second countdown, again incase you change your mind. You can also set the program with the command line for use at the end of a batch file or if you frequently use the same settings.

SDS (Shutdown Scheduler) automates shutting your system down or closing specified applications. It is also able to break a modem connection, restart or hibernate the system or even put it to standby mode.
