Is there a possibility to let the CFX-Solver shut down the computer after he finished calculating?

You can write a simple batch script to tell your computer when the CPU usage is < 1% for > 10 mins then turn the computer off.

Unfortunately I don't know how to write batch files so can't help you with that. If you Google around I'm sure you'll find something.

You do not need to monitor the CPU. That is a very dodgy way of doing it, what happens if the CPU has a pause while saving a results file (as it commonly does) - your machine will turn off!

You simply have a batch/script file with the following:

cfx5solve -def whatever.def
That's all. When the solver run is completed it will then shutdown.
