10.5: Allow Time Machine to run after logout
Authored by: Stormchild on Apr 28, '08 09:11:30AM

"If you want Time Machine to continue backing up after you've logged out, it's as simple as setting your system to leave FireWire drives mounted after logout."

Uh, sure, unless you're not backing up to a FireWire drive, which most people aren't.

Well, that's good to know! Can you share the source of your data that tells what percentage of Leopard users use which backup media? I didn't know that data was published anywhere!

In any case, I don't think a hint needs to help "most" people to be a good hint--after all look at all the iPhone hints we have, and we know that most people don't have iPhones.
