A light-weight, absolute green program (no ads, malware, hidden function) that can enforce:
- How much time a user can use the computer in a day - How frequent the user has to take break in between - How long the break time has to be
The program calculates computer usage accurately, taking into consideration:
- when computer is in sleep/hibernate state - when computer is locked/screensaved - Assign new time slot when a new day starts
[IMPORTANT] create non-admin accounts for your kids! A admin account can circumvent whatever you put in place to control his/her usage, regardless how good the product is! DO NOT MAKE YOUR CHILD ADMIN.
I myself have been using this little program for years. It saves tremendous time and energy from having to manually intervene computer usage in my house.
What is new in this release:
- Fixed overnight calculation issue - Fixed management console bugs, now you can reliably use console to change all limites - New feature: you can increase daily usage limit temporary now in console. Just right click the user, select "temporary increase...", specify the increamental number - Work on non-local users (e.g. domain users, the app disregard domain portion and matches only user name). Use "advanced" button to add domain user. - Using registry to store data
