tdcc is a very simple tool to set a countdown timer to shutdown the system
and to temorarily change the display/blanker behaviour. The same can be
achieved with rather simple DOS skripts, but I like doing things in

Originally I wrote such a tool for my eframe - the Efika multimedia frame. I
like to fall asleep with music, but I don't like wasting energy, hence the
jukebox should power off after a while. And while falling in sleep I don't
need disturbing light of the display, hence it should be off. This tool does
both jobs: set temporarily the blanker settings to according values and power
off the system.


Straight forward. On program launch the countdown is off and the blanker
settings don't get changed. The countdown is preset to 120 minutes but any
value between 0 and 480 (6hrs) can simply be set by moving the slider.
To start the timer hit the button below the slider. To stop it hit, it again
or just quit the program. The blanker works as simple as that. Hit the button
"Display off" to switch off the display, hit the button again to restore the
settings. Quitting the program restores the blanker settings as well. The text
box informs about the actual the blanker settings. That's all.

This tool will shutdown your system without warnung once the countdown reached
zero! Please note the risk of loss of data and/or disk corruption!
Use on own risk!
