I know, I’m not the only one who likes to watch a movie on the computer when I get in bed, and very often, the movie is so “interesting” that makes me fall asleep and wake up in the middle of the night more than half-asleep and barely see the mouse cursor to shut down the computer. Sometimes, I just wake up in the morning with the computer turned on, resulting a bad night with a fuzzy sleep and more tired than I was before I got to sleep, and with some electricity waste in vain for the whole night.
Now, let’s talk about power. The more powerful your computer is, the more electricity it consumes. The amount of electricity consumed by a computer is somewhere between 300-600 watts for desktop computers, and 15-60 watts for laptops. And a powerful gaming computer is using 600 watts/hour, left running 24/7 will cost you about 1000$ a year in electricity – and that is only the computer in your house.
Now here comes Auto Shutdown Pro II to help you make a better management for the usage of your computer. It’s not only that it shuts down your computer when you schedule it to do so, it can block your computer at a specific time of the day, so you can keep your computer safe even if you’re not at home. This “Blocked Time” feature is quite handy if you want your children to do their homework instead of playing video games.
As a illustration for you in order to help you make a better picture of this software: Parents do not want their children to play computer games or text endlessly on Facebook and Yahoo Messenger, chat with unknown strangers on social web sites 24/7 especially through the night. Children may believe that they are indestructible, but parents know better. And what parents do know for sure is that their children have to have their sleep at night. With Auto Shutdown Pro II parents can set absolute limits that guarantee that their children will not be on the computer after bedtime. Auto Shutdown Pro II will keep those computers turned off even when parents are asleep. With Auto Shutdown Pro II, parents get their children back.
So, it will save your money, shutdown your computer, save electricity, and while is also a computer management tool, will make your computer “live longer”.
