and their auditory alerts may be disturbing to some users, particularly in the evening and late night hours. Windows 8.1 introduces Quiet Hours
to suppress notifications and help save battery power. Quiet Hours provides control over background tasks, file transfers, push notifications, and real time communications during hours the user chooses.
When quiet hours is turned on, your idle Windows 8.1 PC or device will no longer show app notifications, turn on your screen when you get a call, or play notification sounds during the hours of the day you specified. Notifications will automatically turn back on if you start using your PC or when the scheduled quiet hours has passed.

in Windows 8.1
and Windows RT 8.1
