I rewrote the entire application and I decided to make the UI a little simplified but I improved the navigation and I think It's great! I removed the scheduling feature and I'm rolling back to version 1.0 but you can still download the older version below.

So What's new in this version
  • Drag the window from top to bottom to close the app
  • Animations
  • Shutdown, Hybrid (most requested feature for Windows 8), Restart, Lock, Logoff, Sleep, and Hibernate buttons
  • Simplified buttons. They are now on the center. And also, cleaned up the UI.
  • This should support Windows 7

remember that this is a WPF application. Not a Windows8 metro style application.
Download SystemPowerShortcutsSetup.msi

Thanks for the application, looks great

One thing, could you please add the option (or auto-detect?) to select the 24 hour clock because not everyone uses the 12 hour clock

Great App, far better than my selfmade shortcuts to 'shutdown.exe'

Thanks!

@OP

Can a tile do different things depending on where you touch/click it?

The Power shortcuts is a great idea. However, taking up one tile per function is a waste of screen space. If it were possible to divide the tile into 4 quadrants, and have a function in each quadrant, that would be preferable.

Otherwise, I'd prefer a two-touch design: Activate tile to have a pop-up menu, then select from pop-up.
