Sleep# – send your computer to sleep after VLC playback

Do you use your computer for playback of films, streamed TV etc. before going to sleep?

In these cases, your computers sleep functionality is suspended whilst the video is in playback.

Sleep# sends your computer to sleep after the playback of full-screen video, providing Windows has been idle for a predefined amount of time.

There is a grace period at the end of the full-screen video before sending your computer to sleep, allowing you to interrupt the process should you still be awake.

For this to work, after the video has played back, the video player should leave full-screen. VLC media player does this, as does BBC iPlayer among others. Please let me know your experiences – does it work for you?

Sleep# can be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/projects/sleepsharp/.
