You can now choose to automatically shut down your computer when the entire Media Encoder render queue is complete.  Check the option at the bottom of the queue.

This is useful to save energy by powering down the system after a long overnight render job for example.  Media Encoder will issue the shutdown command to the OS, but other apps could still interrupt the shutdown process at the OS level, so be sure to quite those other apps.  This option is sticky, meaning it will still be checked the next time you launch Media Encoder.

 

Be careful testing, because . . . your computer will shut down . . . which is the intention of course 🙂

 

This feature is available in AME beta 22.0 build 89 and later.

IMHO this option should not be sticky.

 

I use this option in Macrium Reflect sometimes, not always, when i do daily backups and it´s a great feature and it´s great that it comes to AME. But since it does indeed shut down the computer without questions it has the potential to ruin things/work. That´s why i think this option should not be sticky.

 

Make it "un-sticky" as default and add the option to make it sticky in the Preferences.

That's a totally fair point @Averdahl. I tend to agree.

No, don't make it sticky.

You're doing some other work and AME is running in the background, and all of a sudden your machine dies...........

Make it a dropdown menu with multiple options like HandBrake does:

I had never seen that option before.  It would be better if it would sleep rather than shut down.  Or provide the option for action after render queue is finished, with sleep/shutdown an option.
