Shutdown Timer Classic is a small little Windows app that allows you to set a timer which will shutdown, restart, hibernate, sleep or lock your PC. It is completely free and open-source and does not use the internet. If you want to contribute to the project, just press the GitHub icon (looks like a cat) in the top right of the app. Please also report any problems thereby creating an issue. WARNING: When a shutdown is executed all windows will be closed, regardless if they resist or not so any unsaved work will be gone. This is done so that you can be sure your PC actually shuts down and can not be stopped by some random application that waits for user input before closing or something. Please note that I am not liable for any data loss because you didn't save that extremely important document and now it's gone. That is your fault! The app is very easy to use. You will have a menu presented to you, where you can choose what power action (method) you want to be executed (e.g. shutdown or restart) when the timer reaches zero. Down below you can configure that timer to the exact second and there is also a little checkbox that can make the countdown disappear if you want it to. When you hit start, the menu will disappear and a countdown will open. There you can see the time left until the power action happens and you can also cancel the countdown at any time simply by pressing the close button (that big X in the top right corner). The background color also changes based on the time left so you don't forget that you have it running. Also, the countdown will always be on top of every other window as a reminder that it's active. If you run the app in the background, you will get occasional notifications about the time left and you can cancel, restart or view the countdown anytime by clicking on the tray icon on the right of your taskbar. If you do not see the icon in your taskbar, you need to click on the small arrow-up icon (also located on the right of your taskbar) to view more icons. Btw: This app does not collect any personal data and does not communicate with anything over the internet. No worries, everything is safe and secure.
