PC Shutdown - Timers to automatically shutdown your Windows computer

What is PC Shutdown?

Aquarius Soft PC Shutdown is a simple, elegant and professional computer shutdown software that lets you quickly power off, shutdown, reboot, hibernate, suspend, log off, or lock up your system. A shutdown timer can be set configure to automatically activate shutdown actions at a specific time of the day, once, daily, or weekly. Or you set it to automatically shutdown idle PCs that has no user activity for some time. Keyboard hotkeys can be setup to instantly shutdown your PC via the keyboard. You can even automate cleaning up your PC during shutdown! Further more, it can works even if your PC goes to sleep, saving you more electricity.

During auto shutdown is the best time to clean up your PC. Not only you no longer need those temporary files created at that time, but also your PC will be more efficient on the next boot up.

It is now greatly improved to fully support workstations that are used in the offices or public areas to ensure that these workstations are automatically shutdown after office hours! More information below...
