Behind the scene settings include suppression of screensaver during countdown to prevent interruption, update checking, ability to pause countdown and lots more.
The Countdown Timer also supports command line parameters to create a timer from a command prompt, as well as an advanced timer creation window and an easy-to-learn wizard mode. You can easily switch between the Advanced mode and the Wizard mode.
Other features include full online help documentation. (You may also choose to download and install local help on your computer. This way you wont have to have an Internet connection to access help.)
The countdown timer can survive reboots / shutdowns (a countdown timer will automatically resume next time a user starts their session if it was running at the time the shutdown / reboot / logoff occurred).
The countdown window flashes once a timer has been completed. If a sound has been configured the sound will also be played. Any action that has been setup will also run. Actions can open a file, run a program or perform any other valid action verb.
The system can also be programmatically extended using Windows messages to look for timer information from your own software.
