Super Shut Down

Version: 2.1

System: Mac OS X 10.1 to 10.4

Licence: Freeware

Release: November 4, 2005

Author: Denis Bajram

Super Shut Down is a new interface to shut down or restart your mac.

This is a little application that you can lauch instead of using the "Shut Down" submenu of the Apple menu.

You will recognize the features of the standart shut down interface, with more options :
You can choose your startup disk in a menu.
You can force, if you need, the restart or the shutdown.
You can schedule restart, shutdown, sleep, and forced actions.
You can personnalize every shortcut.
You can add a delay to every button.

Why a delay ? Because this is always when the Shutdown button is clicked that we realize we have forgotten to do something. So, a short delay is perfect to cancel the shutdown process.

Who develops these softwares ?

My name is Denis Bajram and I'm french. I code utilities, scripts or plugins for my private use or that of those around me since my childhood in the 80s. I have always published the most presentable ones in case where it might help other people. But my main activity is writter and cartoonist of comic book. You can discover my creations here:

Are these software really free?

Yes, all my softwares are available for free (although you can make a donation). While they can be useful, they are obviously not as advanced as commercial tools would be. So, by downloading any of them, you agree to a simple request: please not complain about their imperfections 😅.

Are these softwares really safe?

I have used them without problem for months before going public. These programs are not signed and notarized by Apple simply because I see no reason to pay every year for an expensive Apple developer account just to create apps for my personal use. However, if the donations become large, I might think about it.
