about Auto Shutdown Jun 2011

With "Auto Shutdown" you cannot choose a shutdown-time 13:mm or 23:mm or 00:mm
Disadvantages of "Auto Shutdown" compared with "Switch Off"
You cannot choose p.m.-shutdown-times, only 1:00 until 12:59.
I often work in the late night with macrium backups starting e.g. on 23:45,
so i want to set an automatical shutdown on 0:40.
This cannot be set as an absolute time, you only can set a relative shutdown-time in minutes from now.
So I prefer "Switch Off" (1), which also has multilanguage-support and a portable version, both not available with "Auto Shutdown" .
