Off iOS app running on three iPhones, the center on is showing the computers discovered on the network

Off requires the free Off application to be installed on any computer you wish to turn off.

Off currently works on XP, Vista, Windows 7 and OSX.

Off works with Apple’s Bonjour, this is part of OS X and installed along with iTunes on Windows, so if you have iTunes installed there’s nothing to worry about. If you don’t have it installed you will be directed to a link to download Bonjour during the installation process.

Off works with Java. On Windows, if Java’s not installed you will directed to a link to download it during installation. If you're on OS X install it from here

Took about a minute to download and worked better than all the other apps similar to this, to get 5 stars needs more options like-log off and sleep but otherwise good


Thank you ★★★★★

Instructions

When you start the app you will be presented with a list of all the computers discovered on your local network that have Off installed. Press the computer you wish to interact with and you will be given the option to shut down or restart.

If you wish, you can set a password on your computer which will need to be entered on the iDevice before an action is invoked. To do this, right click on the icon in the taskbar and select ‘Set Password’. Enter the password you would like to use and click ‘Set’. Next time you select that computer from your iDevice you will be prompted for this password. If you would like to delete a password you can select ‘Set Password’ and select ‘Delete’.

Mac Installation

Download the application, drag it into your applications folder and open it

To start Off automatically when you computer starts; right click on the icon in the system tray and select 'Options' then 'Open at Login'

Off has been tested with OSX 10.7, it may work on earlier versions but these are not supported.

Troubleshooting

If you get an error when launching Off try the following:

This is usually caused by a problem with the installation. On Mac, make sure you've installed Java and if you get an error saying "Off is damaged and cannot be opened", open Security & Privacy in Preferences and select: "Allow apps downloaded from: Anywhere"

If you're on Windows uninstall Bonjour, Off and any versions of Java you have. Reinstall them in this order; Java, Bonjour then Off.

If you cannot see the computer you wish to shutdown listed in the app check the following:

Check you have the Off application running on the computer you wish to shutdown (If it’s running it will be present in the system tray/menu)
Check that both computers are connected to the same local network
Check that Bonjour is running

If do not get a response when selecting a computer check the following:

Check the firewall is not blocking port 1984. Turn the firewall off briefly to see if this is the case. You should be prompted to allow Off through it when you switch it back on or you can enable it manually.
