    Hi,

    I'm looking for a nice app or widget where I can set a time or a countdown to shutdown/sleep my computer?

    thanks

    in system preferences > Energy Saver options you can schedule your computer to shut down at the same time. or you can set it to go to sleep after a certain period of inactivity in there as well. or were you looking for some other sort of control?

    I hoped for a nice widget, because when I adjust the volume in a movie the "countdown" will restart because the inactivity got interrupted.

    I'd recommend going to versiontracker.com and search for 'shutdown'. I did that and found 10 or so different apps that all do what you schedule shutdown/restart/sleep times. While I personally haven't used any of them, hopefully some of the user reviews there will help you decide. Though I'm not sure of any widgets though.

    thanks.

    Haven't thought of that.

    EDIT: got one.
