"Shutdown computer after renderings" opens a dialog instead of shutting down (Linux Mint)

It’s rather obvious that I would want to use an option to shutdown my computer after rendering if I’m gonna leave my computer unattended while it’s rendering it (i.e. rendering videos overnight).

So kdenlive opening this prompt instead of shutting the system down immediately is, very inconvenient, specially after all the hoops I had to go through just to get the setting to unlock in the first place.

AFAIK, this is not a Kdenlive prompt but the system standard (Ubuntu?). Check whether you can configure it in the system settings of your distro. My Pop!_OS also shows this dialog but has a 60-second timer running which when over shuts down the system.

Yeah I figured it would be something like that, but I did check my system’s settings before making the post and I didn’t find anything like that. I’m using Mint Cinnamon and there isn’t any option to shut the system down X time after the dialog opens available through the GUI that I could find.

Or dig further into how to change the system behavior …

.That’s not really useful, as I said there’s no way that I could find through the GUI. The link you sent me was to add hibernation functionality, not a timer to shut down the system automatically, but even then, it’s also a link to modify the start menu applet, which wouldn’t give me any pointers either.

I’m not tech savvy at all, most I can do is use the terminal after googling commands; I can learn if I find the right resources, which is what I’ve been trying to do for the past few days, but I haven’t been able to find anything. I’ll probably make a dedicated issue on the mint forums, but so far I’ve had terrible luck.

Will check it for my Linux Mint system as it looks promising …
