shutdown specific Windows XP process(es)
« Reply #3 on: June 13, 2009, 12:58:43 AM »
Hi Shane!

I have been using CleanMem 1.4.1 for about a week and am very pleased with the results, and now I see that you have updated it to 1.4.2 - very nice.

I have been looking for a program similar to your Simple Shutdown Timer for use with copying VHS tapes to my PC HDD.  The application involves setting a timer to shutdown the specific process, in this case, One Touch Video Capture.  

In short, when copying a 2 to 6 hour VHS tape, it would be nice to be able to walk away from my PC knowing that after a specified period of time, it would terminate the One Touch Video Capture process automatically.  This is something that the One Touch Video Capture software fails to do.  As a result, when the VHS tape ends (and the VCR rewinds), the HDD continues to record (static) and use up GBs of storage space.  If I were not present, the process would use up all available space on my HDD.  

I have looked at other programs that shutdown Windows XP process(es), but they rarely have timers and those that do, do not exceed 60 minutes.

I recognize that your Simple Shutdown Timer would shut my PC down after a specific period of time, but it may negatively effect my HDD and that is something I prefer to avoid.  

Any thoughts or recommendations are sincerely welcomed.

Thanks again!!

I dont think it would hurt

I dont think it would hurt your hard drive any, its just the process of Windows shutting down, which closes all the programs. The next 2 weeks I am slammed getting some other work done, but if you remind me later it shouldn't take me more than a few hours to put a program together for you that has the timer like simple shutdown timer and will end task on a program.
