WakeUp is a tool that controls the automatic suspend and resume
feature of your system and can possibly prevent suspend or invoke actions on
automatic resume. WakeUp allows to:
- disable screen blanking,
- prevent the system from automatically entering a suspend state or hibernation,
- prevent the system from entering a suspend state if connections are active on one or more of the specified TCP ports,
- automatically resume the system once at a specified date or regularly at a specified time,
- have the system to automatically enter a suspend state after a specified amount of time after an automatic resume,
- choose between Sleep or Hibernation (if supported by your system),
- run an application, a command file or open an URL on automatic resumes.
As of version 2.1, a suspend.exe command-line tool is included in the installation;
you can use it to suspend the system and either make it enter the Sleep state or Hibernation
from a command prompt or as part of a script. You can also assign it to a keyboard key.
Both the Suspend.exe and WakeUp.exe executable files don't have any runtime
dependencies so they can be easily copied to a USB stick if needed to be used on other systems.
Locked Files Wizard
The Locked Files Wizard, formerly known as CopyLock,
is an assistant that allows you to either delete, move or rename files or folders used by the system or
any other application or process. You can display and possibly stop the processes or services
that use executables, folders or dynamic-link libraries (DLL) and try the operation
again to possibly avoid restarting your system and thus save time.
The wizard also allows you to quickly pick the image path of a process (Select
> File from Process) or a program that runs at startup from the Registry
(Select > File from Registry), to manage it. This may be useful
to quickly remove worms, trojans or any other malware from a system.
Additionally you can manage the pending operations that are delayed until the next reboot.
The package includes a command-line version that can be used from a
Command window or a script.
Disclaimer: you can possibly crash your system or
prevent an installed program from working if you are not careful, use at your own

study plug-and-play notifications.
This Universal Converter allows you to convert to and
from many UK, US and metric units. To do a conversion, simply select a category
(length, speed, surface, temperature, volume, weight, etc.), select the source and
the target units. The conversation is made on the fly as you type the source value.
You can also now do some currency conversion, display real-time time differences in
two places in the world at the same time and look up country and phone codes.
The Close to system tray option allows you to run a single instance of the
program and to automatically minimize it to the system tray (the part of the taskbar
near the clock) when you close it. If you need the program again, simply double-click
its icon in the system tray.

takes place in the system tray. It searches your default Windows Address Book

then double-click it to display the list of contacts. Select a contact in the
list and click E-mail to send him/her an e-mail.
You can configure the application to automatically run at startup by
ticking the Run at startup option in the menu.

is a small command-line tool that allows you to close all the
processes whose executable filename matches the one passed as a parameter.
Alternatively, you can pass a DLL filename as a parameter to close all
processes using that library.
Run closeapp.exe from a Command
window to learn more about its syntax.
Note: as of May 2010, CloseApp is not supported anymore and it is replaced by the
Locked Files Command available with the Locked Files Wizard package.
