What do you want a stop point for? What is a stop point?

I want the song to play until it is finished and then I want it to stop automatically.

Right now it just keeps playing until I manually stop it.

I'm not sure you can do this in Cubase. I can't think of a reason to anyway.
Just export the Mix as a .WAV and use the start and end locators to tell when you want to song to start and finish.

Shorcut for setting these is Ctrl 1 (on numeric keypad) for start, and Ctrl 2 (on numeric keypad) for end.
And shortcut to set transport bar to start and end of song is 1 and 2 respectively (on numeric keypad).

Could you explain a little more about why you want the sequencer to stop. What will happen if it doesn't? You may have to rethink your working methods.

I will be using Cubase LE 5 in a Live Performance situation using MIDI and Audio tracks.

When the song finishes playing I want it to Stop automatically.

That way there is one less Key I have to hit so I can get to the next song quicker.

I figured out a way to make it work.

1. Make sure your cursor is at the beginning of the song.
2. At the Menu select 'Edit', 'Select', 'From Cursor to End'
3. At the Menu select 'Transport', 'Play Until Selection End'

The song will Play until the end, then Stop automatically.

The problem is that you cannot Save the Selected parts (Step 2) as part of the song.

When you Close the song and Open it again, the selected parts are no longer selected.

Does anyone know of another way to accomplish this?

If your version has marker tracks you could try to set up a marker track with markers at each stop point and use "play to next marker" transport function. You could then assign this function to a key command and just press the key for next song.
Hope you have success.
