Automatically shut down the PC and notification sound when finished

It would be great to have an option before starting to process a video that says:

When finished:

* Shut down
* Suspend
* Restart
* Close program

Many times I have left my PC on for several hours, and while I was away from home I had to tell a family member to check if VEAI had finished processing the video and then that family member would shut down my PC.
Another alternative is to schedule a shutdown in Windows with the task scheduler, but I never managed to get that simple scheduled task to work.
This is a bit annoying, there should be an option to choose to have the PC shut down (Or any of the other options) automatically after finishing processing a video.

PS: It also occurred to me that it would be nice to have a notification sound when the video finishes processing, so that the icon in the taskbar flashes orange like any other program in Windows. This would be very useful as I often let VEAI process a video in the background while I do other things with the computer and I don’t realise when it is finished or not.

I’d like this too as leave renders overnight. StaxRip has this feature and works well.

It’s not something super complicated to program, it requires a simple line of code, in C++ it would be something like this for a shutdown:

system("C:\\Windows\\System32\\shutdown /s /t 0");

If the development team reads this, they should consider taking 5 minutes to make such a feature in the program. I’m not a professional programmer, I am a student and I know the basics, but I know that doing something like this, that a program shuts down after doing a certain action.

It is something super simple that would considerably improve the “user’s quality of life”. Which is very important and I see that many software developers don’t take into account the user’s quality of life. Which is a big mistake, because if your software is tedious, or has features that people would like to have, they will stop using it.
