If you download stuff using torrents then you would have faced a situation when your downloads were limited and you were not in a mood to let your laptop stay awake the whole night. This is the wastage of electricity and you must not do that. But if you shut your PC down and decide to continue the downloading process later, you may not get the right time soon.
What’s the Solution ?
Earlier I reviewed an application called Wise Auto Shutdown that automatically performs tasks like shutting down, standby, hibernate, etc., at the time you specify. You could use that application and tell it to shutdown when you think your downloading will complete. Since you are just guessing the time, it may/may not finish at that time. For this reason it is not a viable solution, but yes, it was up till now.
But, I recently found a feature in uTorrent that automatically shuts down your PC when all the download completes. Not just shutting down, it can close the uTorrent application, restart, hibernate and sleep your computer too.
The feature can be found in the top navigation of the application under “Options > Auto Shutdown“.
So, now you don’t need to have your laptop stay awake after the downloading is complete, it will shutdown automatically.
