Mortens ShutDown to Shutdown Computer at Desired Date And Time

What we normally do is we tend to leave the computer in power ON condition to download the file until we are back from outside or wake up in the early morning, then only turn it off once the downloading process has completed. In actual fact the downloading process may only take 1 or 2 hours but you may end up leaving it ON for whole night. Have you ever thought to have a tool that can help you auto shutdown your computer once the downloading process is completed? Now here is a tool with the name of Mortens ShutDown which can help you shutdown your computer at a desired date and time towards green environment initiative.

Mortens ShutDown- is a tool to shut down a computer at a specific date and time. It is simple to use: Setup a time when your computer shall shut down and run the application. There are several shut down modes supported as there are a simple user log-off, or restart or shutdown or power off the computer. Running applications that would prevent the computer from shutting down can be automatically killed. You can setup -Mortens ShutDown- to warn you before it really shuts down the computer. Furthermore you can abort the shut down procedure or change the time settings (remotely) during run by changing the INI-file.
In addition this tool can be used to control the launch of any application (from a remote computer) via an INI file. This allows e.g. the following:
Setup a folder from where -Mortens Shutdown- will poll an INI file and react on changes made in it. If you setup this folder as a network share, you can easily modify any setting (e.g. application to launch) remotely.
While -Mortens Shutdown- is running on the remote machine you can setup an application to launch within the INI file. Once you have set the "launch" flag in the INI file -Mortens Shutdown- will trigger the launch of the requested application (script) on the remote machine.
Of course such operations can be protected by a password. The result (output) of the application (script) can be written in a logging file which can be monitored remotely, too.

Mortens ShutDown v1.05 is absolutely free for download.

Re: Mortens ShutDown to Shutdown Computer at Desired Date And Time

Now Download movies or huge files from internet now no need to sit there and wait for the downloading to be finished. If there are any applications that can prevent your computer from shutting down, it will be killed automatically. To kill running applications, you can choose ?wait for save? or ?no wait?, and also you can configure the tool to prompt you with a warning message few minutes before the shut down.
