Shut down your PC on your schedule or remotely

One of the big debates in the history of computers is whether or not to shut down your computer at night. Click here to read my definitive answer on the subject.

Whichever side you come down on, though, there are times when shutting down your computer is a good idea. After all, when it's on it's using electricity and that means money.

Whether you're going away on vacation, or just want it off as much as possible, you might not always be around when it needs to be shut down.

Maybe it's in the middle of a virus scan, update or download as you're headed out the door. It could be playing your music playlist to help you go to sleep. Really, you want it to shut down automatically after those tasks are done, even if you aren't around.

Give Shutdown Timer a try. The free download lets you set a timer to shut down the computer. It can also restart your computer, put it into hibernation or standby, and take advantage of other power-saving modes.

The paid version of Shutdown Timer adds more shut-down triggers like CPU or network usage, processes, networking and general system activity. So if you're running a virus scan, the computer will stay awake. When the scan stops, your computer will go to sleep.

What's even better is that on compatible computers Shutdown Timer can turn your computer back on again for you in the morning. It's an easy way to save electricity and still have convenience.
