    change reboot wait time
    Hello, when you click Apple>>Restart it wants to wait 2 minutes or have you click the restart button. Is there a way to make this action immediate every time? I can use shutdown -r now but clicking is easier.

    Hold down the Option key when you click Restart or Shutdown.

    +1, thanks, was wondering about that myself
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    The only way I know to make them permanent is with AppleScripts. They bypass the Option-key requirement.

    tell application "finder"
    restart
    end tell

    And/Or

    tell application "finder"
    shut down
    end tell

    Save them as applications and drag them to the dock, or put them in a folder and drag them to the dock.

    I've used them for years to kill the startup chime.

    set volume 0
    tell application "finder"
    restart
    end tell

    I have another script added to the Login Items

    set volume 2

    This turns up the sound after the now-muted startup chime. The set-volume number can be changed to better match your speaker settings.
