    is there an app available to close certain programs after a set number of minutes/hours? i enjoy falling asleep to tv shows, problem is that i end up leaving them on all night

    alternatively, if there is an app that would automatically shut down my computer or put it to sleep..that would work too

    thanks!

    If you are a command line person, you could set an "at" job to shut down the computer. It's free and built in . . . but there may be an app out there somewhere.

    App

    there is an app called SleepyTimer or as it calls itself: SleepyTime, which puts your computer to sleep or shuts it down after a certain amount of time that you set. it even goes up to seconds. :D hope this helps.
