10.5: Remove Shut Down from the Apple menu
Authored by: ozcaveboy on Nov 16, '09 02:39:27PM

Using the pmset command does not require someone to manually reboot the machine. An example of a one-time start up would be:

sudo pmset schedule wakeorpoweron "mm/dd/yy hh:mm:ss"

This command will cause the computer to start up or wake up at the specified time. There are also options for repeating schedules. While it's true that the user could shut down the computer moments after it has been booted up, you can always schedule maintenance to occur after everyone's left for the day. I use ARD to schedule updates and maintenance to occur at 3 am. You can also use ARD to lock the screen so that no one can come along and shut it down.
