Shutter 3.3
Shut down your PC depending on a timer, battery level, low CPU usage, process...

Shutter is a portable tool which can automatically shut down (or reboot, log off and more) your PC when your chosen event occurs.

This can just be a simple timer. Set it to 10 minutes, say, select the "Shutdown" action, click Start and the program will begin to count down, turning your system off when it gets to zero.

That's just the start, though. You can also ask the program to activate at a specific time; when your CPU usage drops below a particular level; when a user hasn't been active for a given amount of time; when your battery level drops below a certain figure; when a window closes, or a process stops, and more.

Despite its name, Shutter isn't just about shutting down. You can alternatively have the program sleep or hibernate your system, turn off your monitor, mute or unmute the master volume, play an alarm, and more.

And the Options dialog reveals even more power. You can have the program run specific programs when the defined event occurs, for instance, play a sound, or close named windows. There are lots of ways to fine tune things, including the ability to restart an event when it's been triggered. You even get a web interface to control the program remotely.

Yet all of this comes in a portable program which requires less than 1MB disk space, is free for personal use (commercial users must contact the author for a licence), and supremely easy to operate: just choose and configure a shutdown event, select an action and you're ready to go.

Recent changes include:
* Dropdown menu of actions and events converted to a list menu;
* Enhanced "Close Window" action with methods: Close, Quit and Kill;
* Default method for "Close Window" action is changed from Quit to Close;
* Added option to autorun at windows logon for the current user;
 

Verdict:

Shutter is a powerful tool which provides all kinds of ways to automatically and conditionally shut down (or reboot, or sleep etc) your PC

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
