Mac Shutdown is the app to shutdown the Mac when unattended under different conditions.

Now with options of 'Soft Shutdown' and 'Hard Shutdown'.

Just an example: it can help a user start a download of big files over the net in the night and have the Mac automatically turned off when the download is finished.

The use is up to the user.

It is customizable using an easy to use setting setup panel (no coding or editing of script required).

It's small, fast, simple and reliable and now more stable then ever and fully complaint with the latest OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

You can choose more...

Bloody USELESS under Mavericks, either options soft or hard shutdown; I love wasting my money in this fashion with people that cannot cope with the pace of shifting technologies

If you could see how much license of Mac Shutdown were sold from 2005 to now I'm sure you will change your mind.

I'm amazed from the fact that the more a product is successful and the more is criticized.

Hilarious. The same developer offers "Mac Restart X" for $20 as well. So for the low, low combined price of $40 you can both shut down and reboot your Mac automatically! (Or wait, you could use various free software/scripts etc.)

I really do hate seeing this kind of ripoff-ware polluting MacUpdate.
