I'm thinking you have the computer to boot from a network, not the hard drive. You'll have to press the setup key (whichever the screen tells you to press when you start the machine and look for the bios setting that determines the boot order of your devices. In machines with a CD, the order should be CD first and then the hard drive. Unless you are in a corporate network environment, you would not want it to be set to boot from a network. Therefore, the third boot option should be disabled.

All command in command prompt.


Read manuals for the command prompts (man bash...) and operating environments you think you'd like to use; it will soon become clear that there are an infinite set of commands, even if you use DOS instead of TCPL Batch.

When it 1st comes on it says enter current password


You can do this without the Mac OS X install DVD, but be advised that doing this will trash any saved passwords in your Mac OS keychain.
  1. Power one your Mac and while the computer is starting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window. This boots the computer into single user mode.
  2. At the Localhost% prompt type:/sbin/mount -uw /
    /sbin/SystemStarterYou will then see various services starting up.

  3. When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:passwd USERNAME (where USERNAME is the username you login with)It will then ask you to type the new password twice, so do so.

  4. After entering the new password, type:reboot

I set shutdown time at 10 pm by using crontab but server shutdown at 1800 or 6 pm . I am using LINUX CentOS


Hi
Try using ttps://launchpad.net/gpoweroff also the other way to set auto shut down is

Also another way is

A simpler way is to add the appropriate shutdown command to the /etc/profile file (as root):
Open a terminal window and su to root:
[user@localhost ~]$ su
Password: (enter root password here)

This example will open /etc/profile in the kate text editor:
[root@localhost user] # kate /etc/profile
Add the following command to the end of the file:
shutdown -h hh:mm
Replace hh:mm with the time at which you want the computer to shutdown automatically each day
The -h option tells shutdown to turn the
computer off (halt).
For more information on the shutdown
command open a terminal window and enter:
man shutdown
Remember, the man command is your friend.
With it you can get information on nearly
any command available in your Linux system

Let me know if this helps

When you turn the macbook on it asks for a username and password and i recently changed it and didnt write it down is there anyway of getting passed it


Did you choose a security question? (helps recover password)

OR Try This (taken from another forum)

"Try this
Although there's no real way to recover a lost root password, you can change the root password even if you do not know the current one. You must have physical access to the machine in order to accomplish this task.

Click Restart at the login window
While the computer is restarting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window.
This boots the computer into single user mode.

At the Localhost% prompt type:
/sbin/mount -uw //sbin/SystemStarter

You will then see various services starting up.

When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
passwd root

It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.

After entering the new password, type:
reboot

At the login window, enter username root wih the new password.

Once you are connected, you can use the Multiple Users application (/Applications/Utilities) to change your normal user's password, or create a new user account."

Try using no password by leaving it blank. If that does not work then boot from your OSX install disk and reset the password from the menubar.
