Shutdown Timer


Recommended Posts

I'm sure it's been suggested before, but I'd like to toss my hat in the ring for a shutdown timer. I know you can use the scheduler, but I'm not always looking for a hard and fast shutdown time. When I'm downloading a torrent and it finishes I don't want to leave the computer running all night. At the same time I don't want to auto-shutdown when I finish downloading, I want to be kind and seed for some time. It would be great if under the tab where you have auto-shutdown, "Downloads Complete, Everything Completes" you could have a "Timer Countdown" feature. That way when I'm downloading something that should take about an hour, I could set the "Timer Countdown" for three hours, enabling the torrent to finish downloading and giving me two hours seed time.

I just think you'd find more people would seed torrents with this feature. As it stands now it's all or nothing, either it shuts down immediately after the torrent completes, or you have to leave everything running all night and close it manually in the morning. Again I guess I'm being lazy, I could set the scheduler to the times as I need it and toggle it off and on. I'd just like a quick timer function. :D
