I have tested the Auto Shutdown feature and noticed that the computer isn't shutting down after backup if the computer is locked.

I have scheduled separated job, in windows, for shutdown with parameters "shutdown.exe -s -t 0" and if i lock computer this job is not executed.

This job works only if i add "/f" parameter.

My OS: Windows XP SP3.
I was wondering if there was anything i could do about that and if you could maybe help me in some way.

Manually adding commands to be executed before/after backup is possible only in our commercial product: Backup4all. You can download and test if for free 30 days.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
