    As Acronis wasn't able or didn't want to create the possibility for rebooting automatically the computer after a successful backup, or for a computer shutdown after a time-set backup until version True Image 11.0.8010 and neither in version True Image 2009, i searched in the internet and i found a program which makes it.

    There is PowerOff 3.0.1.3 in english and german version.

    Poweroff is a small program for Win95/98/NT/W2K/XP to schedule a shutdown/reboot/logoff/poweroff/Standby/Hibernate/Lock/Wake-On-LAN at a certain time. It also supports command line options that allows poweroff to be used in batch scripts. It has a built-in scheduler, it allows you to run a program before doing the action, you can give a warning message to the user, wait for a process to finish before doing the action and full remote control is supported.

    Only 168 kb.

    Detailed tutorial, english and german version at http://users.pandora.be/jbosman/poweroff/poweroff.htm >> http://users.telenet.be/jbosman/poweroff/poweroff.htm
    English and german version at http://users.pandora.be/jbosman/applications.html
    English version at http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/PowerOff.shtml

    For Hibernate, put the checkmarks like in this screenshot http://img360.imageshack.us/img360/4020/poweroff3103en01em6.jpg, then click "Process...", it shows you http://img360.imageshack.us/img360/5857/poweroff3103en02kf0.jpg

    For "Process" choose TrueImageHomeService.exe in C:\Program Files\Common files\Acronis\TrueImageHome, then click "OK".

    Now click "Do it".

    This works for every Action to the left side of the PowerOff-program.

    Action Hibernate:
    If you get the Windows-error-message "Not enough system-ressources to close the API" you do not have already installed the ServicePack3 for XP. Then you need a Bugfix (2.4 MByte) from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...FamilyID=9d20f96a-a8d6-4627-89f7-787cd9b3852c , please download there the Optional Update KB909095 which is fixing the problem successfully.
