This app is very simple and effective. It's filled with features that I have yet to explore all.
The app supports Hibernation, Suspend and Shutdown. For my purpose, I want to send the computer into hibernation mode to save electricity charges on peak hours.
I tested for a short period (5 minutes hibernation) and it sent the computer into hibernation mode and wake up at specified schedule. All my work remains open and well!
The default setting has everything (tab) off, except the "Schedules" and "Users" tab. My computers are running Folding Home 247. Sometimes a user is not sitting in front of the computer. The "Users" tab has the check mark "Stay on when there are active users" checked. For my purpose, I have to uncheck it.
There is also a grace timer default at 5 minutes which is nice when the scheduled time has arrived and the user system is busy, you don't want to shutdown the computer abruptly.
For my 10 minutes experience with this program and for my purpose, I would say SmartPower a very nice thought out and executed program. It has many more features waiting to be explored.
