Timelime keeps running when system shuts down

Dear Niko,
when I am accidentally shutting down my computer and Timelime is still running a popup window is showing up with the possibility to either continue the timing or to stop the timing. Unfortunately the popup window does not prevent the system to shutdown.
So in most cases I need to restart the computer and manually switch off Timelime.
Is there any possibility to automatically shut down Timelime as we'll when shutting down the computer? Alternatively using the popup window to stop the timing?

Thank you for any help.

    Dear Christian,

    I am aware of this. Timelime can only pause the shutdown process when its main window is open. Unfortunately, it cannot pause the shutdown process when it is in “menu bar only” mode (the icon is not showing in the app switcher and dock). This is a limitation of the operating system.

    Thanks for using Timelime!
