When we were kids, our parents would always yell at us for leaving the television on when no one was in the room watching it. Now that we're older, we've learned about energy conservation and we turn off the tube when we leave the room.
So why is it, then, that so many of us don't do the same thing with our computers? Is it because we think we're going to use it later, and then end up falling asleep in bed? Is it because it's too much trouble waiting for applications to close before (finally) the PC shuts down? Or is it because we just don't have a copy of SmartSleep, a versatile and powerful shutdown scheduler?
SmartSleep is indeed a smart utility, allowing you to shut down, hibernate, reboot, and execute programs on a 24/7 schedule. That means you can have SmartSleep automatically shut down your computer at a different hour on weekends than on weekdays!
You can program SmartSleep to launch when you boot your machine, and it will quietly retreat to the system tray until called for. The app will shut down or hibernate your computer at a designated time, or after a certain period has elapsed.
SmartSleep will get the job done even if applications aren't responding - it forces all apps to quit and then safely turns off your machine.
The possibilities are endless with SmartSleep. You can listen to music as you drift off into dreamland, and SmartSleep will gradually fade the volume right before shutting down. No more babysitting big downloads that are estimated to take hours - set the SmartSleep application to shut the PC down while you're at work during the day, or asleep at night! You can even schedule your PC to reboot itself periodically!
