this is very frustrating - it shouldn't be necessary to use complex workarounds for something basic like this!
Many of the most basic freeware programs include a function to shut down after completing their process, so why doesn't Win 7 give the option to shut down after back up???
Bewildering. The sleep function in W7 is also useless since it just ignores any running programs and puts the computer to sleep on schedule, interrupting ongoing backups, movie encodes, etc.
