With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in the General Forum

Nice to have for "green" IT

Post by Freddy » Thu Jul 15, 2010 5:12 pm


I'd like to propose a feture, a 5th option for "When all encodes are complete": Logout.
I'm encoding VDR recordings on a Ubuntu System. Shutdown is not an option for me, because some recordings may still run. The VDR would shut down the PC as soon as all recordings are done, but only, when no user is logged on (vdr-addon-lifeguard plugin).
I'm not very familiar with the internas of Linux, but when this is not too much work, I would really appreciate this feature.

Kind regards and thanks for this great program

Is there much of a difference between sleep and a log out? Would the currently implemented sleep lock the screen and all but log one out? What is the advantage of one being logged out as opposed to the computer being put to sleep (hoping that sleep mode is supported on your hardware)?

Perhaps you should re-read the original post?
