Hello!

I made a tiny app to shutdown/reboot computer at specified time. It's written in Hollywood.

http://ramdisk.net.pl/t/Daysleeper/Daysleeper
http://ramdisk.net.pl/t/Daysleeper/Daysleeper.info
http://ramdisk.net.pl/t/Daysleeper/Daysleeper_appicon.info
.readme

Can you play a while, do tests, and post some suggestions for future?

You can run it from icon or Shell/CLI. You can configure it via icon tooltypes or CLI parameters.
You can make it iconified and/or activated immediately at startup.

I plan an OS4 version or an universal 68k version (MorphOS, AmigaOS4) with special option to configure specific shutdown and reboot commands.

Damn good choice for an app name if you ask me.

@evilFrog
Inspirad by a song of R.E.M.


@samo79
OS4 sure, but an OS3 version seems to be useless (almost) due to lack of ATX power on/off feature... and the size of standalone executable file: ~ 3MB.

@kas1e
You mean the version 0.9.3 written in C. It's no longer continued. I switched to Hollywood.

One of my favourites. I can still remember where I was and what I was doing, first time I heard it.

That was ~19 years ago now. Gods and men, I'm not getting any younger!

There is the first public version 1.0 is available on Aminet.
The latest thing I have added was -h option for CLI help.
Wanted to add -? or -help, but in Hollywood CLI options must begin with an alphabetical character, and -help is reserved for Hollywood.
There are plans for future:
- a kind of configurable progress bar
- top bar menu
- help bubbles
- a blinking icon (while iconified) at the end of countdown
