Power down your PC when it's no longer active

AllOff is a capable free (for personal use) energy management tool which can power down your PC when it's idle.

Windows can do something similar, of course, but the plus point here is that AllOff is far more configurable. It monitors keyboard and mouse activity, CPU usage, download activity and rate. You get to define the thresholds you consider as "idle" (the percentage CPU usage, the download speeds, the maximum time for keyboard inactivity). There's even an option to monitor and control a remote PC.

Once the idle action has been trigged, AllOff can pause for a configurable amount of time, giving you a chance to cancel it. Then, finally, it'll perform your choice of action: Hibernate, Log off, Power off, Reboot, Shutdown, Standby. Although even here you have a further option, as the program can either wait if you have unsaved work, or force any open applications to close.

All of this is presented in a basic but reasonably capable interface. A small dialog box displays your PC's current activity status, highlighting CPU usage and download rates; it minimises neatly to your system tray, and uses little more than 4MB RAM while running in the background.

If there's a small hassle here it's that you must register the program before you can use it. This isn't difficult - we clicked a link during installation, a web page opened, we completed a short form and an email arrived seconds later - but if you're unhappy about giving your email address away then it could be a problem.

Otherwise, though, AllOff is an excellent power management tool which provides a great deal of control over how and when your PC will shut down.

Version 6.5 is a bug fix release.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.12

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.12 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
