Yesterday I installed the upgrade to Os X 10.1, and works at this time fine, but I can't find in energy saver panel the autostart up/shotdown option (like in classic), where is it??? it's in another location???

thx

Setup a cron job, you can get a cron helper at version tracker, I think it is called cronnix or something like that

I have never used them but my understanding is that cron jobs you can set events or scripts to run at certain times, Cronnix is a GUI front end for Cron so you don't have to do the CLI

well, I'll try to search cronix, I'm a zero experienced user with unix then if it's possible I'll try to avoid if exist the possiblity that an app do the job.

thx

A 3rd party app is not absolutely necessary. The crontab (chronological table?) file is right in your /etc directory. You can look at its contents from the Terminal with the command "cat /etc/crontab". Pick up a book on unix from your library, and you can learn how to modify it. But I don't think it can do the startups/shutdowns that you want it to.
I can't setup a cron job to startup the machine, but I don't know if I did correctly, otherwise I think you are in right, cron jobs only works with machine running.

the fact that I can't use X to wake me up in the mornings is really pissing me off...could be the only thing restricting me from going entirely X everyday. But then if that is put in...then itunes would have to have a play on open feature that isn't there now, and I'd have to go back to using audion which I hate. hmmm

You can still set up auto wakeup in 9 (when you boot up in 9), then restart in X. After that your Mac will wake up at specified time you set in 9. It remembers!

It works for me. :)
