This is a very useful widget that I use to complete the tasks I normally would do manually every time I shut down my computer. Works just as I'd expect.

the menu is a bit confusing. the slider at the bottom slides for all functions to the same number - am I to believe that in x-amount of seconds with this widget the widget will be disabled, then enabled, put the computer to sleep, log out of the account, restart the computer then shut down mixed with announcing actions/close all finder windows/empty the trash/eject network volumes/secure the system thrown in between?

okay, i understand. this is an user activated widget each time for each option, and not a widget that will activate after a set amount of time. confusing, but understood.
