[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] Shut Down Windows 8 With Shutdown8 – After the release of Windows 8.1 Update, Microsoft did make things better for people to navigate around; however, shutting down the PC is still a hidden component (when you are on the desktop side of Windows 8).
To remedy this issue on my Windows 8 computer, I installed a little program called Shutdown8.
Shutdown8 is available as an install file or a portable app. I went for the portable app version. Once you get it installed, pin the Shutdown8 executable file to your taskbar making it very handy to shutdown your PC.
Not only does Shutdown8 provide convenience in shutting down your PC, it also has the following features:
- Shuts down/powers off computers at a specified time
- Users can set the timer with the [+][-] keys or the mouse wheel button
- Hibernate Mode: Saves the contents from the RAM to a hard disk and shuts down
- Sleep Mode: Saves the state of the computer to RAM and enters a low-power mode
- Works well with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8
