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

hi @scott14 

This option will return in one of the coming versions of 2021.

We would not have had to question if it was done at the beginning when it was up date date. At least now I can ruin my antivirus every day when I finished working on it will close my computer down. Thank you very much

@Stephen Welcome.

Please see above quote from @Igor Kurzin :

“ This option will return in one of the coming versions of 2021”

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.

@Michael54 Welcome. Please contact Kaspersky Lab Technical Support.

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 @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. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

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?

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

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.

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!

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. Thank you!

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.

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:

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
