PreventTurnOff is a small and effective program that, as the name suggests, prevents the PC from going out or shutting down in a time-controlled manner!
Actually a shutdown timer with PC "Anti Blocking System", I didn't have much work with this program, because it is an offshoot of DontSleep before version 4.0. It only has the basic functions of DontSleep, but some users reported too many functions in DontSleep and problems with switching between the two modes, so PreventTurnOff is a simple shutdown timer with the advantages of an "anti-blocking system" and some extras features!
PreventTurnOff key functions:
◆ Ensures that the PC and monitor remain on
◆ Shuts down the PC at a certain time
◆ Quick access to energy options and so on
◆ Very small program
◆ Low CPU usage
◆ Optional translation function
Depending on the setting, the tool reports to the operating system that it has very important tasks to do, if the screen saver is to be activated or the monitor is to be deactivated, it is informed that it is required. It also reports to the system that it has the highest shutdown priority to prevent other programs from being closed beforehand before PreventTurnOff received this command and may therefore be closed and not intercepted by PreventTurnOff to prevent this.
Simple example of using the "PreventTurnOff Tool"
Start the program. The first time, the default setting for the blocking options will be suggested. You can change this at any time or temporarily deactivate the program, which is very practical! This is also possible via the info area on the taskbar. So you can quickly customize it, the timer has different options, what should happen to the PC or the program after the time!

For example, you can use the options to set the program to start with Windows and, optionally, to activate and deactivate the timer when it is started and how it should start.
You can use the system to access to various system-relevant settings with regard to energy efficiency.
You can also adjust the whole thing using the icon in the notification area of the Windows taskbar, which is very practical!
