Steps to replicate this if anyone is interested are:
- Open Task Scheduler
- Create a new basic task
- Enter a description for the task
- On the trigger screen select "When a specific event is logged"
- Select the Application from the log drop down menu.
- Select Backup from the source drop down menu.
- Enter 4098 as the event ID..
- On the action screen select "Start a program"
- Enter "Shutdown" into the Program/Script text box.
- Enter "/s" into the Arguments box.
- Click next & Finish.
- Run a backup to confirm the task is working.
Is this working for others?
For me, it didn't. Set it up as directed, then ran a backup and went to bed last night. This morning the computer is still on. I have Win7 Pro 32.
Is there a log file I might look at to troubleshoot the lack of shutdown?
