Allow the user to set options for after the encoding queue is complete (restart, shutdown, sleep, close Media Encoder, etc.)
Considering how long rendering/encoding/conversions can sometimes take, it'd be fantastic to allow the user to set an option for what happens after the queue is complete.
There should be no need to have your computer running all night when Media Encoder finishes the queue two hours after you call it a night.

@Antoine Autokroma - absolutely.. but i didnt explained myself well, sorry.
Its not sending the video by email, its sending a "Render Complete" or "Render Failure" message to an email account, maybe (this is even asking to much from Adobe) :D ..even formated with the publish options the user selected.
Like: "Render Complete: you local render in on: drive letter/path here/ | your Behance/Vimeo/Youtube has been uploaded" - something like that
EDIT: yes! ALSO the option to publish it to a cloud account, like the CC Account that already exists, would be sweet too
Videos are too big for emails though... Wouldn't you prefer a WeTransfer / FTP / Google Drive / Dropbox link to share automatically by email ?
Sending by email is a good idea ! But it would require you setup email configuration locally in the software/plugin

Totally agree. A shutdown option already would be something nice.
As a plus, AME "publish" options in the same way has it can send a video to Youtube/FTP/etc, it could be added a "send email to:" After render completion or rendering error.
Theres is something similar in AE from quite some time. A render and email JSX script. But the its supper old, buggy, no clear way how to set it up, and simply does not work.

I was just about to request the shut down after completion then I saw your post. I've found some of my work is completed while I'm still asleep so a shut down option would be fantastic. CyberLink PowerDirector has the shut down feature and it works every time, all though with PD you can only produce one video at a time.
I might add this to AfterCodecs https://www.autokroma.com/AfterCodecs

Yes, that's something I'm looking for. It would be a fantastic way to save some money!

Just a tick box saying "shutdown when complete" or something would come in real handy.
