Scheduled shutdown

Message #1 - Posted 2003/11/02 - Stuart

Got a bit of a problem here, i decided to try setting scheduled shutdown as never having had OS9 i had never used it, and i thought i'd try it out. After the event, went back into system prefs and unticked the box for shutdown, however, every night at the time i originally set it for, i get the auto shutdown window appear asking me if it's ok to shut down in however many seconds.

I've been and had a look at the settings, and scheduled shutdown isn't ticked and the ghosted out time is at 00:00 so it would seem to be a bug of some sort. Is there anything i can do (preference file to delete?) to stop this happening every night?

Many thanks for any help

Stu

Set it for another time. Allow you computer to shut down at that time. Then start it up again and unset it.
