Mac Shutdown is the app to shutdown the Mac when unattended under different conditions.
From release 3 now with options of 'Soft Shutdown' and 'Hard Shutdown' issued at system level
Just an example: it can help a user start a download of big files over the net in the night and have the Mac automatically turned off when the download is finished.
It is customizable using an easy to use setting setup panel (no coding or editing of script required). It's small, fast, simple and reliable and now more stable then ever and fully complaint with the latest OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.
The user can choose to shutdown the Mac:
On a scheduled plan
On a specific date and time
When a generic file is removed or moved on your Hard Disk
When a download is finished: using Safari using Firefox or Camino or Netscape using Speed Download
At launch time to use it via Apple iCal
When a keyword is found inside a continuously checked web wage
Using the scheduled plan the user can set any repetitive interval, selecting a time and a day of the week or any day or any weekday and so on.
With the 'On date' option the user can specify the preferred date and time.
The user can select to have the settings always enabled or to disable them after a shutdown … and more.
From release 3 the app uses two different types of Shutdown, the 'Soft Shutdown' and the 'Hard Shutdown'
The 'Soft Shutdown' is issued at finder level and ask to all the running app to quit before shut down the Mac (is the method used also in the previous release 2).
The 'Hard shutdown' is issued at system level and offer a very low level of probability of having the shut down interrupted by an app refusing to quit.
