I am doing a sound installation with a Mac-Mini. [MACOSX 10.5.]
and I like to shut down the computer every evening manually —
but without keyboard and without monitor!
is there a smooth way ?
thanks and greetings,
It’s fine to just turn of the power. If you select in the Energy Saver pref panel to restart after a power failure and put your patch or standalone in the startup items, everything starts up automatically after turning on power in the morning.
… Unless your patch happens to write to the disk a lot, in which case killing power could end badly.
You should be able to use the [shell] object (check maxobjects.com) to hook a button up to a ‘shutdown’ script, though.
