Feature Request: Change "On successful completion"
I think it would be nice to change the "On successful completion" options a bit so one could both have SD sleep the computer and quit the app. Now you have to choose one of the options and since I want both I had to create a post-backup script to put my computer to sleep, and set SD options to "Quit SuperDuper!

Mayeb it would be enough if the "Sleep Computer" option would change to "Quit SuperDuper! and Sleep Computer" when pressing down Shift or Option?

Thanks for the suggestion. In general, these things are done in scheduled backups, and in that case we always quit SD! when done (as long as it wasn't running when the schedules started)...

Okay. Is it the same thing when invoking SD! by Applescript and `tell app "SuperDuper!" to run using settings "mysettings"`. I'm using ScriptSaver ( to run my backup when the computer been idle for 15 minutes and my backup is more than 12 hours old.

No... you'd need to do the kind of thing we're doing in our own script driver. Take a look inside a scheduled copy's package (Control-click on one and "Show Package Contents") -- the applescript there shows exactly how we run a scheduled copy, and you can adapt it for your own use.
