Shut down your Mac remotely
Authored by: dweld on May 05, '03 06:13:26PM

another reason you might want to do a remote shutdown-- the
display on my "Yikes" G4 just failed, and I'm using a keyboard
that doesn't have a shutdown key. I want to turn off the
machine, but can't see to navigate the apple menu, and there is
no shutdown key combination. The power button only turns it
on, not off. Last time the plug was pulled on this computer
(accidentally), it destroyed the hard drive (and left scorch
marks!). What to do? Remote shutdown to the rescue!
