Question about PC Desktops
We have 5 dual processor IMac's that run on a network in our offices and we have a problem with them shutting down. Please can you give us a solution to this problem, we can't understand why they battle to shut down in the evenings even when we've disconnected all our machines on the network before closing. Help please. Thanks.
I have an iMac it was working fine, actually it's the computer my kids use to do their various learning skill on. My 7 year old daughter was bringing up various things onto the desk top...and I dragged them into the trash to remove them off of the desk top...well after that the computer shuts down every time I turn it on...and I'm not sure what the problem is...it will not stay on...I tried pressing the reset button and it still continues to shut down right after I turn it on....please, HELP!
It's one of the dome shaped iMac's it's a 1999 iMac.
A quoted suggestion from my Mac Guru: "They need to turn off the Energy saver preferences for processor
cycling and hard drive spin down. They would actually be better off
turning them down anyway since the G5 duals run really hot and aren't
the most reliable model Apple ever shipped for motherboards failing."
As for the iMac 99, It would be more helpful to know what OS the unit is running. I remember hearing a story about a disgruntled employee putting the 'shut down app' in the start up items folder. This caused the Mac to start as normal and then shut down after the startup was complete. Try starting up the machine with the extensions off. 'Hold down the shift key at startup'
