"Shutdown program with timer for Windows"

Overview

Shutdown8 is a small Windows application that can make it easier to manage Windows processes like shutting down the PC, logging off the current user, restarting the PC (and Windows), setting off Sleep mode or Hibernation mode. Shutdown8 is a taskbar app that can sit at the bottom of the screen and offer options to schedule events like a restart or log off process within a given period of time that is specified by the user. This can be useful for Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 users who want to be able to walk away from their PC but still get the Windows to log off at a pre-determined time (like the end of the work day). A timer can also be set which runs a visual timer clock on the screen to countdown the amount of time left before the action will be taken. Whilst targeting Windows 8 users, the software will actually work with Windows XP, Vista or 7 too.

The setup begins and advises the user that the software is offered as freeware. It quickly installs in under a minute and then shuts down the installer. There is no extra software like toolbars or adware included with this freeware release.

Interface
