We have seen our fair share of application reviews that change system settings automatically when the computer enters idle state. Most of the applications offered to turn off the monitor, lock the workstation or mute the sound of the system. System Silencer can do that, and more which justifies a closer look.
The portable application runs silently in the background upon startup. It can be configured with a right-click on its system tray icon and the selection of Show / Hide Configuration menu from the context options.
All available options are listed on the same page. Available for selection are:
Some options can be reverted when the idle state of the PC ends. It is furthermore possible to specific actions individually for desktop and battery mode. The idle time can be configured individually for each action as well.
System Silencer offers several interesting options. Especially the ability to hide elements on the screen, configure different idle times for actions and the option to revert changes should make it interesting for the majority of users.
The application can be downloaded from the developer website over at Nozavi.
