How to Schedule a PC Shut-Down with Third Party Programs

PCs still lack the most useful tool of all, a remote control. This would be especially useful when you leave your home in a hurry and forget the desktop is running, or when your kids are glued to the screen for hours and you have to make them do chores or homework.

These developers understand the need, and they have prepared a variety of user-friendly software to solve the above-mentioned problem. These timers can not only shut down or reboot your PC, but also log off a user, lock a user’s interface, or send your PC into sleep mode.

As you can see, the most advanced is the last timer. Its greatest advantage is the ‘Hide’ feature. This makes the software is hard to spot.

Sleep Timer and PC Sleep share the opposite end of the scale. Sleep Timer is perhaps the simplest of all, and fully portable which means you can run it from a flash drive. It won’t do to limit the gamer’s time, but it is OK for tasks such as shutting the system down after a particularly slow download late into the night.
