Easy install (Win 7 x64); looks like nice graphics. I don't have time to actually play it right now beyond the welcome page, but it looks like fun. I love this kind of HOG game. Many thanks to GGOTD and lifsoft.com!

I downloaded this, with five hours left, and succinctly ran it with the "run as administrator" option, and wait a second, the screen flashes, and then shows the software informer widget, like always, but there's no indication that it's installed, no way to open it, nor any indication that it is open. Oh, and at the same time it shows the software informer widget, the GOTD webpage with an installation successful message pop's up. I need HELP!!!!!

I'd rather turn on my work pc myself... maybe using hibernate or hybrid sleep the night before to reduce startup time... and shut down friday evening to avoid letting windows becoming unstable by going too long between cold startups.

Downloaded and attempted to install using admin rights on win 10 64 bit with 7 hours left. Message indicating it was installed and activated, taken to browser window but no icon or visible way to run it. What am I missing?

In the process of installing, it wanted to run a test. It said it would start up a couple minutes after it shuts down "soon".
As soon as I clicked, it shut down, there was no "soon" involved;it was immediate. Then I waited a minute and nothing happened. I waited a couple minutes and was considering leaving negative feedback and uninstalling, but I was in the middle of playing a game on my phone, figured I'd do that when the game was over. But suddenly, my computer started up again! This was not a shut-down-completely thing; I'm guessing that it had gone into hibernate, because the data that I had in my copy-and-paste buffer were still there when it returned. (That's a good thing!)

For those who do not know already: hibernate saves the current state of your machine and then shuts down (into a normal, no-power-at-all mode), such that when it powers back up, it goes right back into the state it was in when you began the hibernation. The difference between this and a regular power-down is that when you start up after a regular power-down, the only windows that are open (or software that is running) are those that are set to run upon any system startup. Any applications that you had started by hand are NOT running.

ASTONISHINGLY bad user reviews on CNET.

I am amazed the publisher has them at the top of their 'Look At All Our Awards' list.

I downloaded this without a problem to windows 10 but inadvertently set shut down to 10:am instead of 10:pm. How do I get back to the setup menu? When I click the icon, it flashes on for a second but that is it. (I hate windows 10 so much!)

Thanks

I will concentrate on the negatives having this software installed and runs at specific dates and time.
Problem, Microsoft updates our computers at night at random dates and time.
If you miss the updates you have to manually initiate the updates during the day time and wait, sometimes for hours to be updated.
I'm snowed in and call the day off, but the computers at the office are blasting all day.
I worked passed the cut off time as pre-set in the software, all of my work will be lost when the computers shut off and I'm still typing.
At home same problem, I do not like to be awakened with the computer speakers blasting in my face without a snoose button near by.
I planed to go shopping and not work on the computer that day, wasted energy for the computer to run all day.
I can give 100s of examples of such interruptions and then some.
Example, I want to watch you tube movie late and in the middle of the movie at the moment of the trilling scene, your computer cuts you off.

I do not say this software is bad, I'm saying that it is not all that efficient as advertised, it has potential to do more harm than good.

nathan, Just an OT FYI: After having my OS destroyed by an MS update about 25 years ago, I have never put a single MS update on my pcs, manually or no way automatically. Since, I have had many Windows OS pcs and have forgotten totally about MS updates until I just read your post. It's nothing more than mostly superfluous and potentially dangerous baggage. You'd better be backing up regularly if you have stuff you don't want to lose, otherwise some morning you will find yourself reinstalling Windows through your tears.

>> I have never put a single MS update on my pcs

As someone who is repeatedly asked to fix friend's and family's computers, this sounds about right. If you really want to be part of this elite group, you should refrain from installing any anti-virus, stop performing somewhat regular drive maintenance, and by all means, disable Windows firewall. Now you're golden!

Program works great been using it for years and easy to setup. Also know how to do it in Bios but this is so much better and does a lot more.

Can someone explain this to me?

My BIOS starts my computer automatically at the same time every day. Yeah sure I must know BIOS but still it's a simple setting. It doesn't select days of the week, but it works.

Windows power settings puts the computer to sleep.

The only exception are some programs that keep alive, but these are normal windows/hardware controls. Lets face it, they are useful but exist.

Spam Sorenson, not all PC BIOS versions have a scheduled on facility but if you have it and need basic 7 day on at a given time each day then great!

What's the error that you're facing? if it's 404 page not found error, simply change files.giveawayoftheday(in the address bar) to something like files2.giveawayoftheday or files3.giveawayoftheday.com and press enter. It should work

"And when you leave to go home, the program helps you close the computer so it doesn't wear off."

Wear off... Where has quality control gone nowadays? if this is any indication of the quality of the software, avoid it.
