There are hundreds of reasons why you may want to shut down a application after a certain time, for example if your ISP has a unlimited bandwidth window at certain hours, you schedule the downloads to happen at those times, if you want to kill the download application when your ISP lifts the unlimited bandwidth window, you need to present in front of the PC to do it.
