Windows 7 Shutdown Timer: Minutes

The newest version of the shutdown timer 2.1.1 can force your PC to shutdown (this might be helpful, because Windows usually won’t shutdown your PC if there are still many active apps running). This is by default enabled, so you would have to uncheck the option under “Preferences” if you don’t want to to auto-kill your apps. Optionally, you can also minimize the shutdown timer to system tray, looks pretty cool:

A system tray message will notify you when the computer is going to shutdown:

you are about to be logged off

You can also start the tool via the command line and schedule a shutdown:

Personally, I think a shutdown timer should be a built-in feature of Windows 8, going to add it to the Windows 8 Wishlist.

Of course, you can always stop a scheduled shutdown:
