Auto-shutdown on UPS

Message #1 - Posted 2004/09/16 - PowerPointSamurai

I run SETI@home BOINC on the terminal command line in 10.3.5, and I've noticed that sometimes when I shut down, Terminal halts the shutdown until I manually tell it to quit to allow the shutdown to proceed.

I'm getting an UPS, but want the thing to be able to shut itself down if it has to and am concerned about Terminal blocking the shutdown procedure. Anyone have any ideas how to get around this without dumping the SETI project?

Under the window settings:Processes you can tell terminal to prompt for closing:
- never
- always
- only if something other than (a list of tools you can define) are running.
