Where is the command to shut down or suspend computer after scan in KIS v. 21.1.15.500 (a)?

It was useful in earlier KIS versions. I can not find it in KIS v. 21.1.15.500 (a).

 

Thank you for answer.   Scott

Dear reader,

 

I decided to reinstall my OS, thus installing Kaspersky. To my surprise it has a new interface. I did run a full scan, but I can't find the option to put the pc in sleep when the scan has been finished. I've looked everywhere and even on the forum. I am blind or is it gone? I loved it so much. 

 

Yours,

Marius

Dear Flood,

*Big oof* I loved that feature a lot. Before bed or watching tv I sometimes run the full scan then tell it to shutdown into sleep or the pc itself. 

I hope it comes soon again. I am patient :sunglasses:

Kind regards,

Marius

Hello @MariusKaspersky,

You’re most welcome:relaxed: !

  • Yes indeed, very big *oof*;  as you’ve observed, v21 has a lot of changes, not all of them well received, fortunately Kaspersky have realised this particular change is not welcome and it’s being reversed. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

kaspersky has changed its interface and now when doing full scan,I can not use computer shutdown automatically after the process.

Any update on this, or an ETA as to when this feature will be re-introduced? Having my computer auto-shutdown after a scan is quite important, I run scans overnight so I can use my computer throughout the day.

Hello @nycb213

Welcome!

  • The shutdown automatically option has been removed, however, according to @Igor Kurzin, in @scott14 ‘s topic Where is command to shut down after scan? It is gone, the option will be "resurrected " at some time in a future patch.
  • No eta has been provided. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Where is the function to shutdown the PC after the scan is finished? I am using Kaspersky Total Security for 5 years but with the last update I can not set a scan and then go sleep over night! If you removed the function please add it back!

In the old version of your software when I did a full scan and it was finished I could decide on turning off my computer. In the new version recently updated I am not able to find this option. When I do a full scan at night when I finished working on my computer.

@foxy01 Welcome. This option will be reintegrated in  a next Kaspersky 2021 version.

Can you tell me when this will be

@foxy01 Actually we can’t provide an ETA.

Stating ‘the function to shutdown the PC after the scan is finished button’ will return in 2021 is a rubbish answer. 
2021 is here and some of your customers are waiting over four months for this function to be restored 

I found this function very useful e.g. performing full scan at night. 

Can you please give a proper date for this function to return in an update?

Hello @Michael54,

Welcome!

Correct, the “shutdown the PC after the scan is finished “ option, is very useful.

Kaspersky are committed to resurrecting it. 

No date has been provided. 

That’s normal, all version, patches, updates & bug fixes are released in staggered distributions, the Kaspersky developers will have a timeframe they’re working with, the specifics of that information is not available atm.

Yesterday I contacted the technical support and the answer I got was

 

(Possible it might be brought back it the upcoming updates.)

 

It is pointless contacting them because they can't even tell you anyway

Because tech support dont know if will be available in future … Development team knows maybe. 
All what you can is create your ticket and give suggestion for this on my.kaspersky.com

Hello.

 

I am amazed that, after trying out the latest version of KIS, the shutdown option has been removed.

 

As recommended, I submitted a suitable complaint/suggestion.
