Shut Down Expert

Shut Down Expert 5.01

Manage many system processes automatically

As computers take on more and more automated tasks, they seem to spend more time fully powered on. In many cases PCs are left running 24 hours a day just to execute some tasks the computer may do during non-working hours.

For example, a disk utility may be set to defrag the hard disk during the middle of the night, or as we move into the era of the digital home, a computer may be left running so that the PVR software can record the user's favorite TV show.

Allowing a computer to go into standby or hibernation and then waking it as needed is a much smarter option. Certainly there are tasks that require the computer to be always on, but for other tasks there is often a better method. Shut Down Expert is designed to resolve these problems of your computer.
