The first Auto ShutDown application for Windows XP based on Microsoft’s Performance Counters.

Gill Information Technology releases its latest version of Auto ShutDown Professional for Windows XP. Completely re-written with Microsoft .NET, this version brings Conditional Shutdowns and more new functionality.


  Auto ShutDown XP Professional ensures PC’s are shutdown when they are not being used.

Performance Counters give users over seven thousand conditions for shutting down a PC. These cover aspect such as Processor usage, Print queue through to network bandwidth.

Users can now leave there PCs to download data /Render animations/Print documents or any other time consuming task knowing once complete their PC will shut itself down or log the user off.

It can prevent people from using a PC for a 24 hours period once shutdown.

Customised Warning messages can be displayed before a PC is shutdown. A snooze button allows a user to continue to use the PC for a little longer.
