Bretford iPad Cart Static Electricity problem

This was straight from a Bretford tech:

There are no capacitors or anything that can hold a charge on the cart itself. The only thing that we've been able to come up with thus far is that dry air in the schools may help generating static electricity. Common precautions would be 1. make sure the ground plug is still on the cord. (This can get broken off if the cart is moved with the cord still plugged into the wall.) Plugging the ground cord in won't help however if the person has to grab the door handle to open the door to get to the wall outlet. 2. If the air is dry (ie: people get shocks even without the cart or the problem goes away in the spring when the humidity goes up), gently push the metal of the cart handle against the door frame prior to reaching for the door handle. This will discharge any static electricity that was built up as the person walked with the cart safely to the door jamb prior to the person reaching for the door handle.

My computer is registered with a mac administrator that i dont have...

Can you get into System Preferences to add a new account? If so, set up a new user account for yourself and make sure the checkbox is checked that will allow you to administer the account. That won't delete all of the stuff associated with the original admin. account, but will allow you to go happily on your way with a new account. I hope this helps. Happy holidays, Jon
