    I know auto logoff in OS X has been discussed several year ago, but I still have not seen any good solutions. Just where has the auto log off ability been hiding? It not part of the OS or anything I've seen from Apple.
  • 4. Help identifying file.
    Hi, I've got a file called 'Mac OS X 10.2 6C48.dmg.exe' downloaded from a peer-to-peer system. Is it the upgrade for OS 10.2? At about 80MB it can't be the whole of OS 10 can it? Thanks, ..matthew

I can't seem to find the check box to enable this option for my
MacBook Pro running 10.5.6
I thought it was supposed to be under power management options.. but I
don't see it.

1.Map hostname to ethernet MAC address for wake-on-lan

Dear All,

Wake-on-lan needs to know the target machine's ethernet address.  I'd 
like to write a wrapper script around this so that I can wake a machine 
given its hostname.  So I need to be able to get an ethernet MAC address 
given the hostname.  Can anyone suggest how to do this?  My dhcp server 
has a table (/etc/ethers) with this info, but I don't want to replicate 
this everywhere because of the need to keep it up to date.  So I was 
wondering if there is some "nslookup"-like way of doing it.  I think the 
answer is probably "no", but it's always worth asking isn't it?  If you 
know of a better newsgroup, please let me know.

Cheers,  Phil.

2."Wake for Ethernet Network Administrator Access"? (how to use)

"Wake for Ethernet Network Administrator Access"

Anyone know how to get this to work?

I tried it with an Ethernet Timbuktu network, but no success.

Two Macs connected via Ethernet cable, everything works okay as long as
both Macs stayed awake.

Put one Mac to sleep, then can't rouse it from sleep from the other Mac,
no matter what I do.

It is necessary to send a "Wake on LAN" packet somehow, but can't find
out how to do that, despite searching Google.


3.waking up a powerbook with ether-wake

I am trying to use a Linux system to send a wake-on-lan packet to a
powerbook that's running MacOS 10.3.x. The command I am using is

ether-wake -D -i eth0 00:30:65:F9:C1:62

So far, it doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?
