Do you want your computer to be turned off automatically?

Screenshot - Delayed Shutdown

This program will allow you to fall asleep when you are just listening to your favorite music or viewing evening television shows on your computer.


Enable the sleep timer for it.

Specify in what time your computer should turn off and just fall asleep while an evening show, your favorite movie or music is playing.


Why this program?

That is no secret that there is a lot of similar software. But their authors made them too complicated in their effort to add unnecessary features and settings. For instance, would you like either to turn your computer off or restart it? Or maybe you want to turn it off when the usage of the processor will be less than 10%? It is all good for some average people and if you need to turn off your computer before you go asleep, this is the program for you.

"Thank you for a great program. The main reason I like Delayed Shutdown is that it performs a simple function without a lot of features I have no interest in. I have another program that I use to listen to and often record internet radio programs. One of my favorite programs is aired between 1:00AM and 4:00AM, so I use Delayed Shutdown to shut down my computer while I'm asleep. I looked at many similar programs but yours was the best of the lot by far. With the additional features under options, I can't think of any additions that would improve the program."

"I've long wanted a program to shut down my computer for all of the reasons people want such programs. For one I have just about replaced my regular radio with Internet Radio, which stations are much more diverse than can be found in just one city. Listening to radio all around the world is now possible and convenient. I have been using the AVG Free anti Virus program to shut down my computer as it has a shut down option after doing a scan. So, that works in a limited way.

However, several months ago I did several searches for a stand alone shut down program. I Investigated many such programs. All of them have the very great inconvenience of including a shutdown feature as part of a much more complicated and multi featured program. In other words they are designed to do too much. One has to go to the trouble of dealing with and learning a complicated program to do a single, simple action. After a couple of hours of looking for a simple, single featured program I could not find one and gave up looking. That was maybe six months ago. Then a week or so ago I bought another anti virus program, which does not have a shut down feature as AVG Free does. I may want to use it. So, I did another search for a program to shut down my computer. This time I immediately found your program. Your program, ''Delayed Shutdown'' with its timer, is exactly what I was looking for. It is beautifully designed for the singular purpose of shutting down a computer. I tried it out but I really haven't used it. I didn't finally decide to register it. I register and buy every program I use that is not free, if they offer a telephone number to call to pay for the program. I have only had your program on my computer about three days. It is a marvel of design for what it was created for. Of all the programs I looked at it is certainly the best. I hope you are very successful with it. I'm happy to have found "Delayed Shutdown"."

"Sometime ago, I tried your software to shut down the computer...and I tried others two. Your timer was exactly what I wanted. So I bought it. Others are way too complicated for my usage. I listen to music when I go to bed with wireless headset so I don't have to get up to shutdown the computer. Bravo!"

"This program is very good for people that download or listen music before going to bed."

"Really useful for listening to music/radion shows in bed, then turning the machine off later."

"How I came about your product is simple. I like to listen to music when I go to bed to fall asleep to. My ISP has a great selection of music I can choose from and I like that because where I live radio reception SUXXX! I didn't like leaving my PC on all night long while I slept  due to energy costs and vulnerability. So I wondered if there was a program or SOMETHING that I could put on my PC like a shutdown timer or something. I typed in my browser "Computer Shut Down Timer" (without the quotes) and it took me to a page of links. Yours was the fourth link down and it was titled DELAYED SHUTDOWN FOR WINDOWS. Sounded like that was what I was looking for so I clicked the link, it took me to your web site, I liked what I saw and I did the free trial period. I used it every night until the trial expired so then it was time to purchase it. I got hooked on using it then when I bought it I couldn't use it."




  • Version 3.0

    Now you can use Delayed Shutdown as freeware.


  • Version 2.0

    The program has been optimized and tested under MS Vista.

    Options dialog redesigned for better usability.


  • Version 1.2

    The maximal period by default - 6 hours.

    If you want, then you can increase it up to 8 hours. Use Options dialog for this purpose.


  • Version 1.1

    The interface and features of the program have been improved.

    Interface. During a countdown, the period trackbar is hidden and the space is used to display a larger font for the timer. The program shows hours, for example, you will see 1:30 instead of 90 minutes, which makes it easier to perceive large timer numbers.

    Functionality. The functionality has been improved making the interface worse. Now you can select the range of time for shutting down the computer you find convenient. You can select this interval from 15 minutes to 6 hours. For example, I find it convenient to use the range from 45 minutes to 2 hours with the step of 15 minutes.


  • Version 1.0

    First release.
