Do you make it a habit of falling asleep at night while watching Windows Media Center? Today we are going to take a look at the MC7 Sleep Timer for Windows 7 Media Center. This simple little plugin allows you to schedule an automatic shutdown time in Media Center. This one is for the media buffs who want a new level of automation for Windows Media Center. MC7 Sleep Timer will not work with extenders. ClamAV and Panda will detect the plug-in as a virus. These are false-positives and MC7ST is not malware by any stretch of the imagination. When scanned with Webroot, MalwareBytes, and Microsoft Security Essentials, the plug-in was clear of any malware. I am very cautious about internet downloads and everything gets scanned several different ways before it is allowed to run. It may be that you fall asleep while streaming video or music at the end of the day and the media keeps running until at some point during your slumber you are awakened by gunshots from an action flick that continued. Or perhaps you just want the convenience of an automatic shutdown of Windows Media Center at a particular time of the day or night. Either way, MC7 Sleep Timer for Windows 7 Media Center (WMC) is a useful free plug-in that you can use to schedule an automatic shutdown time in WMC.

How-To?

Download and install MC7 Sleep Timer. You will have an option to select whether you want it to be installed in all user account or you just want to use it on your own.

To set a custom timer length, scroll to the “Custom timer” option and click right or left on your Media Center remote or, the right or left arrow keys, to choose how many minutes before shutdown.
