Goodnight Timer is a small application that automatically shuts down the computer at a designated time. It gradually reduces the volume of the computer before it shuts down. This application is useful for users who want to listen to music before bedtime. It also allows users to properly shut down their computers without having to do it manually. The program has a simple user interface, which makes the program ideal for both novice and advanced computer users.
On the main window, users can set the timer under the Goodnight Time section. Users can choose an action to perform, set the number of minutes before the action, and set the final time for shut down. There is also an option to reduce the volume. Users can set the number of minutes into the timer before reducing the volume. There is also a linear or exponential graph that displays the sound volume over time. The start volume and end volume for the system is also displayed. When all of the settings have been configured, users just have to click on the “Run” button to start the timer. When the volume is reduced at shut down, the volume returns back to its original level the next time the computer is started.
