So, following up on my previous question: I have this Mac Mini that will drive a big data display. I wrote an AppleScript that starts up Chrome and goes to fullscreen mode, and I put that script in the startup items and it all works swell. BUT! I still need to log in for it to work. Can I set something up so that the Mac starts and runs without any user intervention at all? [more inside]
What's the best and most reasonably priced software (or free method), on both the Mac and PC platforms, for scheduling computer startup and shutdown, along with application startup and shutdown. Different software for each platform is fine. Being able to control this from an iPhone would be great too. [more inside]
I'm donating a Mac laptop, and it's loaded with 10.6.0. I want to upgrade it to 10.6.1, but then still have the computer start up for them "virgin" (i.e. with the "welcome to macintosh" rigamarole and with no other accounts appearing). [NOTE: you may believe that's a silly thing to desire. Your disdain has been pre-registered, but I stupidly persist in hoping for this result]. Is there any way to update the OS and then completely erase my own footprints? [more inside]
Is it possible the cold in the room is a factor in why my older imac has a difficult time starting up in the morning?
Mac emergency! I was forced to shut my mac down in the middle of upgrading to Leopard and now it won't start up again! [more inside]
Any advice on reviving an iMac that stalls on bootup? I hit the knowledge base, chatted with a tech, ran various tests and tried the basic tricks, but still, no go. [more inside]
