Nice app.

It's very useful app for when I play music before I sleep and use the shutdown feature. I use the notification option to remind me how much time i'm wasting on the internet. I don't think the sleep feature really works which is a shame. It would be amazing if there was an option to wake the computer from sleep. It could then be used to play music as an alarm clock!

Shutdown problem

I adjusted the timer to shutdown my Mac after 1 hour, but when I came back later it had not shutdown it, saying the VLC player (for example) couldn't quit. I think its normal to expect that the timer should force quit all the programs and shutdown the Mac….

Very nice app

It is nice to have my playlist going in the background serenading us into lala land. to have the music gradually fade is so nice and no longer have to get up and shut down the app and system.
