Jeremy. Your solution looks good, but I have an observation and a question. I have backed up several times (whole system backup) and the event IDs are consistent:
753
1
4
14
754

I can see why you changed to 14, but it seems to me that 754 would be better in my case. The information on 754 says "The Block Level Backup Engine service has stopped."

I'm backing up the whole system, so I think that's why the 754 process is running. Perhaps if I just back up files, that wouldn't run and 14 would then be correct.

I'm not much of a geek, so I wonder if you have any thoughts.

If you have your backup on a schedule, you can add an action to the AutomaticBackup task to shutdown your computer. Then if you wanted to do a manual backup, your computer wouldn't shutdown from the task watching for the completed backup event ID.

I have my backup on a weekly schedule when I am sleeping. I don't like to keep my computer on when I am not using it. I have my router send a WOL packet to my computer 5 minutes before the backup is supposed to start. Once the backup is finished, the AutomaticBackup task runs "%systemroot%\system32\shutdown.exe /s".

I just realized I could keep my computer in sleep mode and windows would wake it up for the automatic backup. I will probably keep the WOL schedule just in case I turn my computer off or had booted a different OS before the backup.
