Autopoweroff is daemon that is started at boot time, and which function is to shutdown the computer at a specific time, but only if some conditions are met. This software is meant for the Linux operating system.
The computer will shutdown if all the above conditions are met:
Any hosts that the computer is dependant on is not answering ping anymore.
No keyboard or mouse activity has been detected on the computer for a while.
The user has not disabled Autopoweroff.
What's New in This Release:В· Moved the icon from "Applications/System Tools" to "System/Administration".
В· LSB and rc.status based bootstrap scripts now supported in the RPMs.
В· Now supports officially the three main distributions: Ubuntu, OpenSuSE and Fedora.
В· `arping` is now also used in addition to `ping` to test if dependant hosts are up. This cascading of tests increase the chances to detect a dependant host if the host make use of a firewall.
В· If /dev/input/by-path/* are non-existant on a system, /dev/input/* entries are used instead. This will allow Autopoweroff to detect user events on Ubuntu 06.06 for instance.
В· About dialog would not close properly. This has been fixed.
В· Some small GUI improvement were introduced. Mainly, some widgets were simply to small for the font size. They were slightly increased.
В· Files in subversion were moved to trunk/. branches/ and tags/ where created to better manage the software.
