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???
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.Originally posted by testuser
You could set a cron job to shutdown a machine, but I have no idea if it is possible to have one that will start it up again (after all the BSD system must be running to process the cron job).
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.
yes it works, but only for one time, in my case at second auto stratup os X won't remember.Originally posted by ae77
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.
