It’s nice to have your Mac constantly ready for work, but you do need to switch it off now and then. Here’s how to maintain your MacBook Pro or iMac in tip-top shape by automating its shutdown, startup, and reboot.
Many Mac users are acquainted with the commotion of booting, shutting down, and restarting their machines. The procedure might take a few seconds or minutes on older Macs, but it’s not something most people want to undertake.
Many people like to leave their Mac or MacBook on all the time so that it’s ready to go whenever they need it. An always-on Mac eliminates the need to wait for it to boot up at the start of a session, decreasing the amount of hassle a user has to deal with in the morning.
How to access the power schedule in macOS
- Click the Apple logo in the Menu bar.
- Click System Preferences.
- Click on Battery (Portable Mac) or Energy Saver (Mac mini or iMac)
- Select the Schedule option
The schedule is made up of two events that may be scheduled for the Mac.
The first of the two events determines when the Mac will start up or wake up. The second event has a drop-down box which allows you to restart the Mac, put it to sleep, or shut it down altogether.
You don’t have to use both lines because the tickboxes may be used to activate either. You’ll only need to utilize the bottom event if you want to restart the Mac every day at a certain time.
