If you want your Windows machine to turn off automatically after completing the backup job, you can set up automatic shutdown using native Windows commands.


  1. In the backup plan, open Backup options -> Pre/Post commands,
  2. Enable the Execute a command after the backup switch.
  3. In Command field, specify the path to Windows Shutdown command: C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe

  4. In Arguments field, type: /s
  5. Save changes
  6. Shutdown will be executed with a 30 seconds delay after backup completion: such delay is usually sufficient for e-mail notification to be sent after backup (in case e-mail notifications are enabled).
 If any other activities start after backup (replication, validation, clean up), they will fail if automatic shutdown is set up via post-backup command.
