    Im not too savvy with the Mac, just been learning the basic stuff here and there.

    We have a Mac running Mac OSX10. Its setup for the public to come in and transfer music from there CDs to there Ipod.

    I want to be able to do 2 things if possible.

    1. Setup either a script or batch file if possible, to allow the computers to shutdown at a specified time. (on windows, its a batch file thats in scheduled tasks).

    2. Also when one person copies all there music over and is then done, they leave the computer. The next person comes to the computer and can see all the music that was copied to the library, and in return confused myself and the public.

    Is there a way to have a script or program, make it so that either it automatically clears out that information. OR a script that will automatically clear out history, cookies, all the users information when the computer is restarted?


    Thanks for the heads up guys.

    You are asking for trouble using that setup. What would prevent any user from copying all MP3 music from that machine? Anyway, you could write an applescript to auto shutdown or in the system preferences. You could also write an applescript to start a new playlist in iTunes at startup. This can be done from the "File" menu by the user also. Check apple.com for applescript uses.

    Apple Menu\System Preferences\Energy Saver

    Click on the button labeled "Schedule..." down at the bottom right. Tell the computer when you want it to start up and or shut down every day.
