    Automatically turn of Mac at Certain Time
    Hello I was wondering if anyone knew how to make your mac turn off automatically at a certain time in case anyone forgets to turn it off? My mothers computer she leaves on 24/7 and I am sick of going after her and turning it off. I have told her but she will not ever.

    I would also like to do this for the other macs in my family Macbook Pro, Macbook, and iMac. If anyone has an application for this please let me know. Also I set parental control time limits on the computer but I do not know if it shuts off the computer.

    Specs:
    IMac 20" 2 GHZ 4MB, Macbook, Iphone, Ipod Touch
    Go into systems preferences under energy savings and set the sleep option to what time you want. Putting the unit to sleep is not the same as shutting it down, but at least you don't have it running full blast.
    Now I also have an Iphone, Ipod Touch and a MacBook, this is getting addictive! And I just changed over to a Mac Mini at the office, running Entourage through our Exchange Server. Wild!

    You can schedule shut down in the energy saver screen in system preferences
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
