add the ability to shutdown PC once syncing has completed.
as syncing can take a while, adding the ability to shutdown pc once syncing has finished would mean users don't have to start the sync and hang around till it finishes just to be able to shutdown pc.
This would be a valuable quality of life feature that would make Onedrive seem a little more complete to new users, like me. :)
I would really appreciate this option. Working from home, on the end of my working day, the upload is most of kind still in progress. This would save some trees! (=elecrical power)
Great Idea I voted for it: but here is a workaround meanwhile:
- install the tool dshutdown on your pc (or another shutdownmanager with the following function:)
- choose the function: shutdown on pixel changes
- choose a pixel of the grey (working) sync client in the status bar
- shutdown is triggered as soon as the client symbol changes its colour due to sync end
I upload large files to my OneDrive so having shut down PC would mean I could upload while in bed and know my PC will turn off when finished.
Yeah, I think it would come in handy.
For now, you can use some Windows PowerShell commands such as shutdown -s -t (here you write time to shut down in seconds). It's a very useful one that I use quite often.

True, sync on shutdown would be a great idea.
Good idea - or maybe even better, an option to always sync on shutdown.
