The 'Auto Shutdown computer after all downloads finish' extension that I used for Firefox 3.6 - Auto Shutdown 3.6.2D by InBasic , does not work with Firefox 4 or higher, even if I tweaked it to force its compatibility with versions of Firefox higher than 3.6.

Is there another extension, software, or solution that can automatically shutdown or standby / sleep the computer after all downloads have finished in Firefox 4 or later versions?

The OS I'm using is Windows 7.


Shutdown Timer. Set it to monitor download speed, works like a charm.

  • Just would like to add here that Shutdown Timer's network management functionality (monitoring of download speed) is not free. You have to buy the 'Premium' version which has that functionality. Sep 23 '12 at 7:38

The Auto Shutdown NG extension can auto shutdown or standby/sleep the computer after all downloads in Firefox finish.
