Auto shut down - turn your FileZilla Client eco friendly please

Your app should turn "green" and help save the Earth with power saving options.

I'm using your FTP client to upload 10gb+ folders to my Google Cloud, and yes, I'm doing it during night time, when the energy cost is lower.

I'm using a low speed connection and I cannot add many such folders to the upload queue since every uploaded folder is getting saved on external HDD's the next day.

My solution to this problem is in the title.
Please add the option (something similar to the video encoding software) to turn off the computer when the upload is finished and to save the log file so that I could check the next day if there are some failed transfers. It would be even better if the FileZilla client would "remember" the failed transfers and automatically retry everything as soon as I restart the Client.

I hope someone is actually reading this request before deleting it for bad formatting.

Thank you very much

Best regards

Just configure your computer to turn off automatically and tell it to respect programs' request to stay up during ongoing activity.
