    Hi Folks,

    Anyone able to help with this backup 10 script, windows xp shutdown problem?

    I have set up several Drive Backup 10 backup scripts using the backup wizard, scheduled to run at 01:00 and shutdown the computer after running. The back up happens but not the shutdown and the PC is hibernating in the morning.

    I am sure I ticked the shutdown on completion box in the wizard when setting up and looking in the scripts it has the command shutdown illustrated below:

    // Shutdown
    shutdown

    tailend of the script pasted below.

    going in to windows xp, all programs, accessories, system tools, scheduler, properties there is no editing facility for shutdown in the script properties

    Any thoughts or answers anyone? Much appreciated.

    Did you try to run any operation (not scheduled) with Shutdown checkbox enabled? Does it powering off your PC?

    Hi Mech Animal,

    Thanks for your interest.

    The back up schedule power down set tick box is only for scheduled tasks. I will however try it for an ad hoc there and then backup.

    What I have noticed though is the PC will shut down at the end of the scheduled back up script if I am using the computer at that time ie the pc is powered up.

    The back up schedule runs but it seems not to shut down the pc if the schedule starts in stand by mode which it normally is at 01:00 am. In this instance the windows scheduler has been asked to wake up the computer to run the schedule.

    Any thoughts? Hope you are having a good weekend. :)
