There are certain tasks that take excessive time to complete and you would not want to wait by your computer until they are finished; such is the case of downloading large files, converting batches of videos or performing time-taking calculations, or even more common activities, like listening to music before you fall asleep. It is very likely that you would not like your computer to keep running after these tasks are completed, so PC Sleep is here to allow scheduling system actions at a certain time.
Using PC Sleep could not be easier. In fact, it is even easier than setting your alarm clock. The developers have avoided crowding the interface with useless elements so that you can use this program right from the start. Several system functions are available. In this respect, you will be able to log off, restart your system, shut it down, and put it in standby or in hibernation. Two execution methods allow you to decide on the time you will keep your computer running before you start the action. In this regard, you can set the exact time (using the 24-hour format) or a time period (the application will start counting down the selected time until it is over). Although there you will be able to minimize the application’s window to the task bar, there will be an option that lets you hide it in the System Tray. When the time is almost over, the application will show a System Tray notification that will allow you to cancel the operation.
To sum up, PC Sleep is a free easy-to-use application that performs simple but useful actions. The interface is neatly design and leaves no place for doubts. My tip is that sometimes this application will not be necessary as many download managers and media converters include the option of shutting down the system when their current tasks are over.
