Turning on iMac

Does your power button click when turning on the iMac? I hope my power button isn't broke. Is there a way to Turn on the iMac without pushing power button.

You can set a schedule to turn on your Mac or wake it from sleep. Go to System Preferences > Energy Saver > Schedule

Mine doesn't but I'm on a MBP. It may depend on which iMac model you have. Does it not turn on?

I remember on my Mid-2011, sometimes I would feel a little resistance, and then it would release once I pressed it further. Almost like a physical "click" but I don't remember an audible click. I'm still waiting for my 2012 iMac to update to PFS and then be shipped, so I can't help you with that. Are you referring to the Late-2012 models or another model?

Late 2012 model. It sounds normal. Just a little worried because my MacBook pro does not.

My 2012 iMac doesn't click. That's clearly defective.




Oh I kid, I kid. Yes, it's a really obvious click, and my 2009 iMac was the same way. Ze click! It is normal!

As it happens, I think the click is even more defined on my 2012 than it was on my 2009. Feels very solid. I likey!

Mine clicks - It's really stiff. It works fine though. I tested all the new Imacs in the Apple Store near me and they all had variations on how stiff they were. Mine is at the extreme end of the spectrum. I don't really see it as a problem though at this point. It works as intended.

I think you forgot an "r" in one of your words there!
