very good only I wish I did not have to clear each time the window in order for me to select Restart or Shudown.
The new gadgets look good and are more convenient, Great stuff!! Thank you very much for this great work.
Very simple control computer, even windows “Start” button not show all references.
I use most of your gadgets Just so I can stay on top of my computer and its functions.
Great gadget, only thing is make it less grainy so its sharper on the screen like your other gadgets.
I feel peasure to say that when i joined this site my desktop has been changed .Now what i did just listen…. I download all your gadgets product and i hide all my icon and folder in desktop . those folder which are importand i added them in one gadgets .and i hide my task bar and start menu to make my desktop more beautiful and really it is a kind of fun with our computer and making our works fun and funny. I’ve just one suggestion that would you please to allow us to large the size of gadgets.I will recommend that to my friend. Thank agian!
this thing looks awesome. thanks a lot for this. i would like to add on one thing. please have a “switch user” option too. thanks !!
Control system plus clock gadget is much better, love how you applied a purple fade to black display face, while keeping the gadget footprint small. keep up the great work!
Love the gadgets and information.
Quick and easy to see what is going on under the hood!
I use your meters for battery, network, earthquakes and drives. Also the tray clock, world clock and system control.
You get my OWPA. One Wire Pliers Award. Congratulations.
Just what I was looking for. There exists more than one of this category of gadgetâ€”some are better than others. Some outright don’t work right. This one’s simple, straightforward, work perfectly, and offers the ability to customize its background color, as well as the clock color if so desired.
Normal Windows 8 Shutdown and Boot are more like Windows 7 Hibernate and Restart from Hibernate. They are actually called Hybrid Shutdown and Hybrid Boot. The Hybrid Shutdown/Boot provides a very fast Boot. It is actually a shutdown of the current user plus a hibernate of the OS. Starting may not even go through the BIOS and the OS is reloaded directly from the hibernate image. The system never “Shuts down” in the classic (Win 7 “hard Shutdown”) meaning.
The “Shutdown” button with this Gadget does do a classic (hard) Shutdown. It DOES NOT do a Win 8 hybrid shutdown. This causes a typical Windows slow Start when used.
Gadget could be improved by providing buttons for both a Win8 hybrid Shutdown as well as the classic “hard” shutdown.
i know it seems a bit silly, but this is the most useful gadget I have ever used. It is an extremely handy way to shut down, restart, sleep, and hibernate a machine. And it tells time!
Seriously, I use this to sleep my desktop and laptop. When you get those pesky “restart to complete installation” things, this is a great way to control it yourself.
The lock/unlock keeps me from restarting by accident.
Seriously handy little gadget that takes almost no space and does what it says…no more, no less.
Great Gadget! If you make the icons more modern and let people change the size of the gadget then would be a million times better.
Thank you so much for creating such an intuitive product, it saves a lot of time. Love you!
My favorite gadget. When developing it is always good to be able see if the system is still alive, (when it keeps on ticking, then I’m good) thanks you everyone…

I really appreciate your gadgets for windows 8,it’s exciting. thank u!
sits really fantastic fabulous gadget.
Great little control gadget. I frequently sleep or hibernate my netbook. Nice desktop controller, and the lock was a nice touch!
By this widget to add a shortcut key, it would be super handy!
Love this gadget, especially in Windows 8. Makes shut down a breeze without have to mess with the Charms bar.
So much easier to access from the desktop. Works great. Wish you would bring back the Talking Clock.
IT’S EASIER TO SHUT DOWN THE CPU.
I really appreciate your gadgets, windows 8, exciting? haha, thanks for your continued work!
The new gadgets look good and are more convenient, Great stuff!!
Use this gadget all the time, especially with Windows 8. Can’t beat the one click Shutdown/Restart!
I really couldn’t see the point of this gadget in Windows Vista or Windows 7 – but it comes into it’s own on the desktop of Windows 8. No need to search around for these controls – just click the gadget – teriffic!
This works grate with Windows 8. Make it so much easer to shut down.
very nice, tiny gadget. But i would like to have a timer included, so i can shutdown/restart/hibernate… after a countdown.
Can’t wait to see the update :)
I found the idea of this tool very good to not have to click through the lengthy menu. But after some testing i found out that on my Samsung P480 Notebook with Windows 7 64 Bit, the Standby button does a Hibernate instead and the Log off button only locks the computer. Also i’d find it nice to change the size of the gadget like in your other tools.
Keep your good work up!
