This is a fix for Tab Sleep Timer by Daniel de Haas which has a bug that causes the add-on to stop working if a timer is ever cancelled. This bug also exists in the Firefox version of the add-on. The original add-on has not been updated for months as of the time I am writing this, so I am assuming it may be abandoned and I decided to offer this fix. If the author fixes his version I will remove this one.
Risk impact

Sleep Timer requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Sleep Timer is very likely to contain malware and should not be trusted. Avoid installing.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

It works only if the extension window/popup is open. But if you set timer and close the popup then the tab is never closed after timer expires. And please make it remember the last time was set.

This one actually works instead of crashing.
