|Asked questions on this answer:|
- Is there an option for a computer to restart/logoff after the timer expires. Use case: I have a shared/monitoring PC that needs to be logged in by the first person coming into the office (showing help desk statistics on a big TV). Don't sleep is happily preventing the computer from sleeping. What I want to achieve is for the computer to be restarted (or logged off) after the timer expires (after 8 hours), making sure the computer doesn't stay logged in after hours. I could achieve that with MS Scheduler although it would be neat to have it in your app. Of course, it will need to be a parameter/switch that could be passed on during Don't Sleep startup. Would that be easy to achieve?
