Stopping Bittorrent client after finishing downloads

Leaving your bittorrent client running after finishing download is a generally a good idea. However for sake of geek curiosity I tried a simple method of stopping my transmission bittorrent client after finishing the download with ....

/usr/bin/transmission-cli -f 'killall transmission-cli' elephantsdream-1920-hd-mpeg4-su-ac3.avi.torrent

The -f, --finish <shell script> is used to launch shell scripts. The 'killall transmission-cli' command kills (all) transmission-cli bittorrent clients running on this computer. It seems to work for me, do share your experiences
