The Insmart Auto Shut Down software allows a computer to be automatically turned off.
Computers are often left on when they should be shut down. You can extend their life and save
money by using our Auto Shut Down software.
Insmart is providing this energy saving software for free in an effort to reduce green
house gas emissions. Please consider using this software as it is a very simple and easy way
for everyone to help combat global warming.
You can select any number of times for each day of the week that a computer will be turned off.
For a one off shut down you can also select a specific date and time a computer will shut down.
Suppose users of a work computer leave work every day at 5:30pm. You could set a shut down time
of 7pm for every day of the week so that the computer is never left on all through the night.
Suppose users of a home computer leave for work or school at 8am in the morning. Simply select a
shut down time of 8:15am from Monday through to Friday. If the computer is accidentally left on
in the morning it will be shut down at 8:15 and will not be left on all day.
At night everyone might go to bed before midnight so you could set a shut down time of
12am every night so that if the computer happens to be left on it will get shut down and not be left
on all night.
How the Software Works
The software invisibly loads at system start up and monitors the date and time until the
computer must be turned off. The software displays a 20 second warning that the computer
is about to be shut down. Anyone using the computer when the warning is displayed has the
option to cancel the shut down.
Any work that has not been saved will be lost when the computer is shut down.
