Step 2. Choose the Task You Want to Execute

The "Turn Off" action is selected by default, you can choose other actions like Restart/Standby/Hibernate from the "Action" dropdown menu.

Tip: leaving PC on when it's idle is only burning electricity. Auto shutdown can save you electricity bills and protect your computer and its system from damage caused by overheats, extending the battery life.

Step 3. Set the Task Execution Time

Switch to "Time Schedule" section to define the schedule to auto shutdown your system.

You can check "Relative Time" to specify the relative time from now/after next restart/after every restart to perform selected action.

Specify Relative Time

If you want to executive the task on the specified time every week, check "Every week on" and click "..." to check Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday and click the up or down arrow to define the exact time according to your requirement.

Schedule Weekly Time

It also allows you to select the exact date and time every month for the action. Check "On a specified date" and click the calendar to select the date and then set the exact time. Click "Apply" and it runs in the background quietly. It will pop up a countdown reminder one minute before the execution.

Tip: remember that the delay time should be at least 2 minutes. The auto shutdown manager may not work if you set a time less than 2 minutes.
