TimeComX is a small and resource-friendly automation program, that can execute various actions after specified time or by a lower deviation of network and processor usage activity. User can Restart, Shutdown, Log Off, Lock, Hibernate, Suspend and Wake, Play any type of audio-file (mp3, ogg, wma, wav...), as well as file execution (e.g. batch files).

Optionally, you can let TimeComX make a screenshot before the action starts.

v1.3.2.7

In need of a timer program, I just tried to use this one portably. The previous instructions (i.e. just portable "out of the box" once extracted) didn't work, nor did creating an .ini (mentioned in comments here for a previous version) or manually moving its settings files to a profiles or config subfolder or the app folder itself.

Finally on the archived version of their webpage I found this explanation: "For TimeComX Basic 1.3.x you need to create a text file (can be empty) named "portable.txt" in the root folder of TimeComX."--see https://web.archive.org/web/20140327235607/http://www.bitdreamers.com/en/products/timecomx/faq

I have updated the instructions here to reflect this, but someone else may want to still clean it up a bit.

v1.3.2.7

@Midas did you enable hibernation via "powercfg -h on" as administrator? It worked perfectly for me and now TimeComX shows hibernation as well as sleep mode.

The extraction instructions above don't seem to work with the latest Universal Extractor, but the version I downloaded (1.2.4.10) is portable by default if you copy the install folder elsewhere before running, as it keeps its settings in a 'profiles' folder it creates inside the application main folder.

That folder size is initially 8 990 228 Bytes, but this is mostly due to the uses of the Qt framework, which bids well for its future multi-platform compatibility. With UPX applied to the exe and dlls, it can be decreased to around half the initial size.

It shows a donate nag dialog on exit, but it can be disabled.

It didn't offer an hibernate option on my laptop, although that option is enabled and is detected by other utilities, which is a deal breaker for me (I vouch for Shutter; see above).

On http://www.bitdreamers.com/products/timecomx/faq it says:
Q: How do I use TimeComX as a portable application?
A: After installing TimeComX, copy the whole install directory to any place you like. Then run the uninstaller of the installed version. All settings will be saved in "TimeComX.ini".
