Step 3: Once you choose an option from this first menu, you will then have to configure additional settings. If you have opted for a timer, this involves little more than specifying how long the timer should run. But we are interested in using the Shutdown option for now. You may also use it for restarting, hibernating, sleeping, sound muting and other available actions.
