If Retrospect is not quitting after your backup but you have the
Special>Preferences>Unattended setting set to "Quit," remember the
look-ahead time. This is what Retrospect uses to gauge whether or not the
backup Mac should be quit. If there is a script in existence that is
scheduled to run within the look-ahead period (defaulted to 12 hours), it
will not quit so that this script can successfully execute. You can change
this to a minimum of one hour.

If everything seems in order, try running the backup with nothing else
loaded on the machine. Something else may be preventing Retrospect from
executing the shut down command. You can also try restarting with minimal
extensions before the backup.

If you have further questions, please call us directly. Our technical
support number is 925.253.3050, and we're open Monday through Thursday 9 to
4 Pacific Time, Friday 9 to 2:30.

> Subject: simple question:  Retrospect won't quit
> I currently am running several scripts, one of which backs up every
> client each day.  When I had only that particular script running,
> Retrospect would "auto start" normally, run the script, then quit and
> e-mail me the log file--no problem.
> Recently, however, I've added some scripts to run _after_ the main
> one, backing up all files on each client, one client each night.
> That script also works fine, e-mails me the results, but it doesn't
> quit after it's completed.
> I didn't change the settings, and when only the main script is
> running (like on weekends), then the program quits fine each time
> after completing the back up.
> Any thoughts as to why this might be?  It's a minor annoyance, but
> still puzzling.
> Thanks.
