Newly installed, I've set autoshutdown to load at startup and configured it to activate a shutdown after 1 hour idle, primarily to secure the PC if I leave without shutting it down.. Now, if my email client checks for mail every 10 minutes, there will never be an idle time. Which is a problem! To further test this, I turned off the email and any other utilities that might be running. But, Windows itself does its insidious little things in the background, some of which cannot be stopped. So, Autoshutdown based on idle time won't work. What's the solution, if there is one?
Thanks for your help.
