One of the things that can force a PC to shutdown is system updates. Most updates require the PC to be shut down in order for them to be completed, which can happen at any time, even when you are busy working on an important project. This is a lightweight application that prevents PC shut down, restart, hibernate, standby or performing other power options.
You can choose to block shutdown, standby, hibernation, log-off, and activation of the screensaver. The application enables you to decide when to start and stop the blocking operations with a few options such as exit and stop blocking, exit and shutdown, exit and aggressive shutdown, standby or hibernation, disable blocking.
It is simply designed to block the above-stated actions, nothing more, and its simplistic interface support this fact. The application sits in the system tray and when launched, it reveals a window with a drop-down menu and a couple of checkboxes.
You can also set the application to start running from between 5 minutes to 48 hours ahead of time. In addition, the application provides you with access to a few Windows tools.
While there is no help file, the application is quite easy to use and performs its job perfectly.
