I get the option to Shut down computer when finished during encoding stage of Avidemux. Why would I want to do that?

  • It's sad to have a downvote without a reason. It's not obvious to me, why I deserved this.

  • how about I downvoted it because because You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face, and I can't see this as an actual problem you're facing. Jan 20 '11 at 2:22
  • @xeno Considering that that post was published after your down-vote, is it what you had in mind?

  • I think my generalized thought was that, this really is not a problem. But it's not offtopic either... which is why it wasn't closed. In all fairness this was me as a person, not as a moderator, saying I don't like this question and I don't think it's a good one. Jan 20 '11 at 9:56

Maybe because you're encoding is going to take hours after you leave and you don't really want to keep the computer running when you're not using it to save power.
