Energy Saver Schedule Shut down

Message #1 - Posted 2005/03/29 - John Holt

Does the shut down feature of the Energy Saver Schedule work? Actually, to be more precise, what would be running that would prevent it from working? Running 10.3.8 on both a G5 iMac and G5 Power Mac.

Thanks in advance,

John Holt

I can only guess, an application hanged will cancel the shut down. Or, e.g. you wrote a document and didn't save changes.

Some applications are slow to systems "quit" requests, so OS will think it is hung up, won't bother with shutting down.

E.g. imagine angry authors calling Apple about losing their latest book :)
