How do I get my mac to require password for shutdown
I want my mac to require a password when shutting down. Is that possible?
I've googled it but I can't find anything.
I want to be the only one that can shut down my computer on the button, som that others can't shut down by mistake or on purpose.
Thanks for help in advance.
But that doesn't stop someone from holding down the power button to Force shut it down and even if you had this password to shut down feature that same thing can happen, Power Button held down until the system turns off.
So if I needed to shut down any modern computer, notebook or desktop, no matter if it asked for a password or not to shut down, all I'd have to do is hold down the power button for about 5-10 seconds and the system would power down. Totally defeating the password prompt.
