  2. Windows 10 backup shutdown

    Whenever backup runs, my computer shuts down after completion. I require remote access to this computer on a regular basis, so it needs to stay on after backup. I have gone through the settings, but there doesn't appear to be any way to change this.

    How do I change the backup settings to allow the computer to remain on afterwards?

    Automatically shut down computer after backup completes

    Hi, to which backup method are you referring?

    E.g.
    File History
    System image creation
    Windows Backup and Restore

    Disk imaging by a 3rd party program

    File and folder backup by a 3rd party program

    Etc... Thanks.


    As a general example, you can write a script monitoring the existence of a process (e.g. a running backup program). When that stops running, the script can issue a command to shut down the PC.

    You can use a 3rd party program to shut down the PC at a specific time or after a certain time.

    There's no built in mechanism to shut down when complete, but there's an interesting use of Task Scheduler on SevenForums that should be applicable to 10 too.

    Also, WISE products has a free Wise Auto Shutdown with a rather small learning curve; once installed, you simply click its shortcut, set your shutdown goal (whether count up, count down, specified time, etc.) and click its start button.
