CPUOff monitors the CPU load and initiates computer shutdown if the average CPU load has been below a set threshold for a preset time. It can also be used to control a remote computer. CPUOff supports all the normal shut down modes. CPUOff is part of the JSutils group of software utilities which have a theme of energy conservation. To find more energy and money saving ideas check out Practical Home Energy Saving.

Uses of CPUOff include unattended backup, shutting down the computer when the backup has completed. It can be started via the Windows Task Scheduler, on start up or manually to allow the computer to shutdown automatically once a CPU intensive task has completed. CPUOff is a great little utility for saving energy by making sure a computer shuts down when it has finished an unattended task.
