I can elaborate. When I am done with my work at home (usually at 4am ) 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).

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.
