AMP WinOFF 5.01
Schedule a PC shutdown with AMP WinOFF

Leaving your PC on unnecessarily is a bad idea, and not just for environmental reasons - it's also a waste of money. Just four hours of pointless idling a day could add £40 to your annual electricity bill, perhaps more for a high-end system. We'd hazard a guess that you can think of better ways to spend the cash.

Shutting down your PC when it's no longer required really does pay, then, and AMP WinOFF provides plenty of tools to help. In a few clicks you can schedule your system to shut down at a specific time and date, or you can ask the program to turn your PC off in a specified number of minutes.

If you've left your PC running some complicated task - video encoding, say - then of course you may not know exactly how long this is going to take. But AMP WinOFF can help here, too, by shutting down your PC when the CPU is idle.

And while by default the program will power down your computer, it also provides full access to all other Windows shut down modes. So you might for example schedule an unattended system to restart every day, to avoid problems with memory leaks. It's also able to suspend or hibernate your PC, lock it, and more.

Version 5.0.1
 ◾Fixed: The list of network adapters in Windows Vista/7 included also disabled adapters.
 ◾Fixed: The program failed sometimes to detect the list of network adapters, especially in Vista/7.
 ◾Fixed: In certain situations the program failed to save the settings for all users in Vista/7.
 ◾Fixed: When using the same settings for all users in Vista/7 the program displayed an User Account Control confirmation before activating the shut down planning, even if the settings wasn't changed.
 ◾Fixed: The program didn't saved the shut down time AM/PM value properly.

Verdict:

A very flexible way to schedule when and how your PC should be shut down

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.
