Hmm, it's reminds me "the one way" -> installer & de-installer... (maybe ".deb" do this better?)
And a really short wave weight... 1,2MB.
Why don't use Ogg Vorbis? That will reduce weight to ~ 30KB. You have "Ubuntu" on requirements.

Scripting practice - OK, but the simple way is -> from "sudo" (Ubuntu):

shutdown -h number_of_minutes time

number_of_minutes -> put the number of minutes here, system will shutdown after that number of minutes.

For example:

shutdown -h 120 time

will shutdown computer after 120 minutes. You can set it from "1" minute.

For countdown aborting, set (again by "sudo"):

shutdown -c

Anyway, information about the time remaining to computer shutdown will be displayed on the terminal.
