Making a Mini stay on.....

Message #1 - Posted 2005/11/28 - bob prohaska's usenet account

Hi all,

How does one set up a Mac Mini to boot on the application of AC power? In other works, to restart itself after a power outage.

I expected to find something in hardware preferences, but didn't recognize anything. Mac Help searched forever on the keyword "power" and found nothing useful. (it's still looking!)

This has to be simple, thanks for any help.

Ahh, many thanks! If it had been under "energy waster" I probably would have found it 8-)
