How to prevent restart actions in desktop flows

The last action of a desktop flow is the "Shutdown computer" action to restart the computer:




This action always results in errors being logged (screenshot below) in the log (Monitor>Desktop flow runs) however, which is not desirable because it means there is no easy way to know if the desktop flow failed for a reason we need to investigate or if it failed for this reason (no need to investigate).  We have to manually click on every failure to determine this.


How can you use the "Shutdown computer" action in a desktop flow without it resulting in an error being logged each time the desktop flow runs?  We have tried turning on "Continue flow run", in the error handling (screenshot below), but this did not resolve the issue.  Any assistance would be appreciated.  Thanks!
