When clicking the right option of any action, the program executes that action immediately. The 'with parameters' option allows you to set that actions when to act. You can set a delay to any action which will countdown from the moment you will start that action or you can specify a time of the day when that action will execute.

The 'idle time' parameter enables you to execute an action if your computer reaches an amount of time (set by you) in idle mode.

You can always set how much time should be the CPU usage under the specified percentage before taking action. The 'closure of a program' option enables you set an action and execute only if an application is closed.

For example you can set the 'sleep' action if the CPU usage is lower than 10% or the idle state of the computer is more than 10 minutes. Also you can set a 'shutdown' action to perform if the CPU usage is lower than 10% and if a program (specified by you) is closed. In addition, it provides various themes and languages for the user interface.

A free utility tool with unique features which enables you to set an action to be executed if a certain program is closed or if certain logical conditions are met.
