Power Button, Shut Down Help Please!
I want to use my start up / shut down controller to completely power down my mac mini. I went under energy settings and unclicked the let power but sleep the computer. Now the power button does not shutdown the computer like it would on a PC. (ie. close open progams and shut down) Is this normal.
If I can't send a shut down command from the startup/shutdown controller then when the power to the mac mini is completely killed about 45 seconds later it could corrupt data, right? Or is it really no problem?
Note: If I hold the power button for 6 seconds the result is an immediate loss of power with out closing any programs first.
Is there a setting to change this, I don't want to deal with the power drain of the sleep mode if I can help it.
