Shutter is a customizable program that lets you perform a variety of actions when a user-specified event occurs. Events include timer countdown, a certain time trigger, low CPU usage, user inactivity, a low battery etc. The corresponding actions include shutdown, reboot, logoff, lock workstation, sleep, hibernate etc.

The program can play a custom sound and/or run a program of your choice, in addition to displaying a user-configurable message. A web interface is also available that permits remote execution of one of a list of actions.

Note: A pro version is available without the limitation of 5 presets, events and actions.

Works great. I find this very useful for uploading videos online. It can take hours for them to complete, so I usually do it overnight. However, I want the computer to shut off after they finish uploading. This program did the trick!

Shutter version 3.3 is no longer FreeWare for non-commercial use, it is now CrippleWare- Shutter Lite.

Recently, I upgraded to Windows 8.1 Update 1 and had trouble waking up the computer from sleep.

I tried various solutions, but ended up turning off automatic sleep in Windows and using Shutter to Sleep after X amount of time is inactive. Now, I'm able to wake the com up. I understand this is a workaround, but this ended up working for me.

RunAsDate v1.36 Updated

  • Suggested by risk

RunAsDate is a small utility that allows you to run a program in the date and time that you specify. This utility doesn't change the current system date and time of your computer, but it only injects the date/time that you specify into the desired application.

You can run multiple applications simultaneously, each application works with different date and time, while the real date/time of your system continues to run normally.

This is __philippe's territory but I noticed that file version is 1.3.0.0 while "About" shows version 1.31.

I really find this program useful just like most all NIRSOFT products :)

I've been using Don't Sleep for some time now and it works great for me. It updates frequently but I never had a problem with the many previous versions. I use it when doing routine unattended maintenance, when making large backups and downloads.

allclownsareevil on 2012-02-05 19:20

I think "Don't Sleep" should win an award for the most updated program on TPFW. :-) Works well though, thanks.

MIKLO on 2017-07-02 14:24

WOW no comments for such a long time, this is a program I have used for many years and it still works great for me even now while using Windoze 10 does just what it says and does it perfectly.
