TGShutdown – Shutdown Timer for WM

XDA member beatlevlc presents another alternative to automatically program your Windows Mobile device to shut down. TGShutdown is a small application timer on a easy interface with Start/Stop buttons and calendar view.
Now, you can go to bed listening music or watching television knowing your device won´t be awake forever after you fall asleep.
Tested on hTC Leo but should work on any device with WM 6.5 and up.

[APP] TGShutdown – Shutdown timer for WM

Hello everyone!

I like to fall asleep while hearing my favourite radio program on saturday nights (one of those about terror stories and paranormal stuff ), but usually I go very late to bed, so the program has finished already

So someday I decided begin to use podcasts, this way I can download the last broadcast and hear it. No problem with other phones but… when I tried this with my new HD2 and seen the battery consumption the next day…

At least in my case, battery consumption was terrible even in flight mode and with the podcast has finished and player has stopped, so I decided to find “something” to power off my phone when I fall asleep

I’ve been looking for a simple application that starts a countdown and finally shutdowns the device (similar to many others for PC), but only found big apps with complete scheduling for lot of things that I don’t need (turn off and on phone, WIFI, 3G… but with a specific date and time in the calendar without possibility to set a timer to begin “right now”), or apps that do a simple shutdown but without previous timer. Doing my search I noticed that many people was looking for this same application.

You can find more information in the application thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
