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.
this is why there is so many other applications used with Windows I don't care what Windows backup will or will not do I use Comodo Backup V1.04 have for a long time and it does everything I need.
I do agree though MS should try a little harder to include great basic features like this but even if they did some people like myself would still use other software
