    Hi. I'm using Windows 10, and the Shutdown Assistant does not shut down my system at the time requested. I've scheduled Shut down at 10:54:51 PM every day, or Shut down upon System Idle for 180 mins.
    • Sorry, we have tested the function on Windows 10, finding it works well.Please make sure that you add the task to the list and click "Start" icon to activate the task.Also, always let the software works in background.
