What is Auto Shutdown Manager?

Key features at a glance:

Reliable Wake Up: Wake on LAN and local Wake Timers

Machines can be awoken from sleep via a timer, or via Wake on LAN from a central server. Auto Shutdown Manager supports so-called local broadcasts and directed broadcasts, as well as WoL proxies, thus making Wake on LAN highly reliable across different networks, VLANs, and even the Internet.

WoL office PCs from remote sites

A free tool called Wake on WAN Client (WoW Client) allows remote workers to wake their office PCs from remote locations, such as the home office or when at a customer’s site.

Idle Shutdown Timer

The Idle Shutdown Timer can be made dependent on running applications or the utilization of background processes, as well as on almost any other system component such as network throughput, CPU, or HDD load, and even the sound level of the microphone if desired. This ensures maximum savings by avoiding unwanted shutdowns.

Scheduled and Remote Shutdown

A shutdown can be programmed for any time or at different times, such as shutting down daily at 11 pm or rebooting every Friday night at 2 am. A remote shutdown can be executed by the server or via an admin PC at any time.

Save Documents and Flexible Shutdowns

Not only can the shutdown mode be selected flexibly for different times– such as standby, hibernating, restarting or powering off depending on the day or time, it can also be set to save open documents automatically before the shutdown is executed.

Client Server Mode

Auto Shutdown Manager can operate as a standalone installation or in a client-server mode. An Auto Shutdown Manager Server can manage thousands of clients: It can manage their settings by groups, policies, WoL schedules, maintenance plans, statistics, and much more. This allows for the easy and reliable management of thousands of clients from a single central place.

Plugin for Microsoft SCCM

The Plugin supports all shutdown commands, as well as WoL for individual PCs, or for collections directly from the SCCM Console. You can find more details here.
