    $\begingroup$ Render from the command line using some shell script (like python) to shutdown after running render. What OS are you using? $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Jun 23 '18 at 8:42

    $\begingroup$ You may have no idea what the command line is, but that shouldn't stop you from clicking on batFINGER's link and reading the resources, they're very well explained. $\endgroup$ – Leander Jun 23 '18 at 9:16

The Alarm and Shutdown add-on can be used.

Alternatively, you can render your scene from the command line, and then add a command to shutdown after it completes (or fails).

On Windows this would be something like:

"C:\path\to\blender.exe" -b "C:\path\to\your file.blend" -a && shutdown -t 0 -s -f
