    Shutdown/sleep/restart alert/delay app.

    Anyone make an app that warns you that shutdown/sleep/restart has started delay it by a minute so you can cancel it if need be?

    I'm on win8 but a win7 app should work.

    I just googled it, there is a program named Delayed Shutdown, but I think what it does is shutdown your computer at a specific time.

    This application has a feature "Warn me before executing action". And there are options for that warning window: Snooze, Now, Cancel. If nothing is selected in several seconds, it performs predefined action.
