iTunes Sleep Timer

Here is a simple sleep timer app I made for iTunes. Basically, it asks you for an amount of time (in minutes), and whether or not you want the computer to sleep as well. It will then wait the amount of time you requested, and then pause iTunes and put your computer to sleep if you chose that option.
