10.5: Remove Shut Down from the Apple menu
Authored by: gabester on Nov 16, '09 07:53:50AM

I would think a more effective and standard way to do this would be to use Energy Saver settings to automatically turn the computer during your maintenance window and/or enable the "Start up automatically after a power failure" and "Wake for network access."

I also think there are some MCX settings that would remove the Shut down option from the menu (I know it can be removed from the login window), although I haven't personally looked at OS X Server in a while.

Best bet would be mapping the shut down command to sleep; then you can use WOL to bring the Macs up for your maintenance.

Finally, by making the item into a separator does it act as a separator or does selecting the separator shut down the computer? Hopefully this won't generate more support calls for you!
