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.

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.
QUOTE Thanks
