Have option to shut down computer when complete

Postby DLinMA » Fri Sep 24, 2010 8:14 pm

It would be great to have the option to shut down the computer after the erase is complete. That way we can run the erase on Friday evening and not have the computer stay on over the weekend.

Eraser 5 had this. Eraser 6 doesn't as it was rationalised that doing so is illogical -- Eraser 6 runs on a scheduler system. Tasks are always scheduled and it's impossible to know when all tasks are "complete" because recurring tasks would just be scheduled to run again and some later time.
