If you've ever left for work, realising you left your PC on, perhaps you'd like a way to turn it off?
With TweetMyPC, you can remotely log out, restart, or shut down your PC using a Twitter account! Once installed, you just have to enter some Twitter account details and restart Windows for TweetMyPC to be ready for action.
It's a good idea to open a special account for this otherwise your Twitter friends might think you've gone crazy, as you activate TweetMyPC by posting tweets: Shutdown, Restart and Logoff are the case sensitive commands, that do exactly what they suggest!
TweetMyPC works by checking the Twitter account every minute, and responding accordingly. Once it has started logging off or shutting the process can't be stopped, but there is a 90 second period to allow users to finish what they are doing. Therefore it's not quite an emergency security tool, but it's still pretty useful. The tweet commands are not written anywhere in the application, so you have to remember them, or go to the developer's site.
It may only do three things, but it's a pretty cool fail safe device to switch off your PC should you forget.
