Auto Shutdown option in Scheduler
Can you make the auto shutdown options part of the scheduler. Currently if I want to use the scheduler and shutdown afterwards I have to wait for the downloads to start before choosing the shutdown option. If I want to use off peak time that means I gotta stay up fairly late.
I would like to be able to enable the scheduler at 9pm to start downloads at midnight and auto shutdown when downloads are complete.
I propose an option within the Auto Shutdown which is done according to the Scheduler, i.e. when it has reached either your peak/off peak times, it will pause all the torrents and shutdown
timer for close utorrent automatic
It would very useful if the Auto Shutdown feature could be activated by hh:mm:ss, example: shutdown 03:42am. I hope to see this feature in the next version!
given the fact that most of us have peak and off-peak hours to utilise the bandwidth provided to us by our ISP, I think another great addition to the "auto shutdown" ability would be the capability for the program to 'Stop' all downloads and then 'Quit' uTorrent and then "Shutdown" the PC when a certain time is selected.
I always want to go to bed soon, or have to go to school.
But I don't want to let my PC run for about 6 hours!
So I thought about a timer... You know.
"I think I go to bed now... I'll let it run for about 1 hour..."
This would be such an easy thing to implement that I am surprised the uTorrent team haven't implemented it yet. just add a drop-down list on the scheduler and hook it to the code that is in the "Auto shutdown" menu. It would be such a handy feature to have.
Set "Shutdown when Downloads Complete" to true using command line on windows. How can i do it?
Shutdown in accordance with scheduler would be excellent. I too have to be careful when I'm using uTorrent so as to avoid upsetting my ISP. I usually seed between 11pm and 1pm. I'm usually at work so can't turn it off myself.
Those naysayers below obviously aren't very GREEN if they think leaving ones computer left on whilst it's doing nothing is OK!
There are lots of tiny proramm that can do that.
For example free small programm AMPLite.
This is not a uTorrent specific Feature.
In windows, you can do it by entering the following command in Command Prompt or Run
shutdown -s -t [TIME IN SECONDS]
shutdown -s -t 3600
to shut down in 1hour
Anyway there are many freeware GUIs hat does the same thing by this or scheduling.
I also would like to have this feature.

And why not just use the windows scheduler to do this instead?
meke this with third party application
Why can't you leave the computer on?? PCs don't need to be shut down very often, and I even run my laptop for LONG periods of time.
Letting it run overnight won't hurt it, even a little bit. And, you'll get your downloads a lot faster.
This would be great (with the option to set shutdown/standby).
Along the same lines, it would be nice to also have an auto wake up (using a timer with wakeup flag set, these wake up my laptop where as a windows scheduled task set to wake up doesnt), This way i can leave it on standby when i go out and still dl/seed during times i can afford the quota, while saving power.
I would be able to use the scheduler standby to eliminate the need to use the standby on download complete, meaning more seed time.
I would say in addition to the wakeup the ability to set the power mode when woken up by the scheduler would be nice incase i forget to set it to low power mode before going afk, but i have my doubts this would be implemented.
