Imperatives with aspect

I was wondering what the meaning of imperative verbs with aspect suffixes 
would mean.
-pu' means an action is finished or completed, so tlhutlhpu' would mean "he 
finished drinking" or "he completed (the act of) drinking".

Would yItlhutlhpu' mean "Finish drinking!"?

LIkewise: yItlhutlhta' "Finish drinking (on purpose)!" (or something along 
those lines)
yItlhutlhtaH "Keep drinking!"
yItlhutlhlI' "Keep drinking! (but stop eventually)"
Would those be correct?
