PC Shutdown Utility v2.0 By: KHANSoft.ml
A Freeware software for fast shutdown
You computer goes through a lot of changes every day, such as new software installations or various other system modifications that usually require a system reboot to take effect. The standard reset procedure may prove to be too slow in certain situations, especially if you have to sit through it more frequently.
Increase your system's shut down speed
PC Utility is an application designed to relieve you of the long waiting times encountered in the default turn off procedure by modifying certain registry entries, in order to boost responsiveness and speedup the shutdown process. In addition, you can also make use of the reset and log off functions, which are slightly improved as well.
Furthermore, these tasks can be scheduled using the built-in capabilities of the application, which enable you to shutdown or reboot your system at the specified hour. After the task is added, you can view the amount of remaining time until the effect takes place. Unfortunately, in some situations the timer starts counting upwards and the application fails to do its job.
Turn off your screen and adjust the process kill mode
If you just want to save some power by turning off your monitor, you can do that as well from inside the utility by simply clicking on the appropriate button. This sends your monitor in stand by mode and it can easily be turned back on with a simple mouse movement or by hitting any key on your keyboard.
The running processes also have a big impact on the shutdown speed of your system, since they have to be safely terminated before the turn off process can proceed. PC Utility gives you the option to adjust the method utilized to kill these processes, but you should be careful using it, since a fast termination can also cause them to end without properly saving important system data.
All in all, PC Utility is an application that, although slightly improves the shutdown speed, is also a bit unpolished and sprinkled with some minor bugs that affect the overall functionality. The interface, however, is intuitive and easy-to-use by anyone, regardless of your computer experience level.
