I often leave my renders overnight, and I want to be
able to have an option to shutdown my computer after
it finishes rendering. Unfortunately with two
Apophysis instances this may disrupt the other, but a
helpful feature nevertheless.

    Hmm. Rendering two flames simultaneously is REALLY NOT a good idea.
    Rendering requires all RAM you can get, and rendering with "memory limiting" (I bet you use it to render 2 or more flames at once) actually multiplies rendering time <number of slices> times!!!
    So, the really helpful feature will be some kind of "render-queue", which I am going to start making after releasing the version 2.03d ;-)

    Surely i would be helpful to have an option to shutdown
    your computer after this 'rending queue' has completed
    though? That's what I'm asking for after all..
