Feature request - shutdown/lock/sleep when completed

Veeam Logoby znabela » Thu Dec 04, 2014 10:33 am 2 people like this post

Would like the possibility of shutting down my laptop, hibernating or sleep or even lock the session, once the backup is complete. (manual backups only)

What about just giving an ability to launch a post backup job script that would address a lot more scenarios (including this one)? Would that be helpful?

Can you add a shutdown timer and shutdown delay / abort option (when a user is logon) with the shutdown function?

Can you elaborate this senario? Thank you.

I can elaborate. When I am done with my work at home (usually at 4am :D) I will want to have an ability to start a backup with an option to "shutdown computer once the backup is completed", and go straight to bed without waiting for a backup to complete (before I can shut the computer down manually).

[MERGED] Feature Request - Post job Action

Veeam Logoby cstemaly » Thu Dec 04, 2014 4:35 pm

I'm thinking powershell script, but of course it might allow for other things.....

if its scripting I would like to see Before Job and After job so that you could if needed flat file a database with some commands before the drive is imaged.

An added feature - when job completes, do one of the following, shutdown, sleep, hibernate, execute powershell script. (advanced users). Sounds like the way to go Vitaly ;)

I'd like to see this functionality, either as a "shutdown after backup" option in the endpoint tray icon. Or if at all possible an extra item in the windows 8.1 power options dropdown on the metro interface that reads "backup then shutdown" (similar to when you have the option to "install updates and restart" when windows updates are available).

I second that. A "shutdown after backup completion" checkbox option, at least, would be welcome. Even better a dropdown list of actions to take after backup completes: shutdown, hybernate, lock, run program.

I believe I've already said this somewhere else, but "at logoff" backup schedule should trigger when the user initiates computer shut down if possible, because first part of shutdown is logoff. I don't expect users to actually logoff that often, most of us just lock or shutdown computers instead.

This would be nice to have the option to shutdown the client after backup is finished
