    NOT a thread about powering-down vs. sleeping a machine...

    I'm going on a 2 week trip and would like to power-down everything for obvious reasons.

    Question: does the iMac (I have a rev A 20" 1.8 ghz) have an internal battery or is there any reason I need to leave the machine "plugged-in"? I'm assuming there's no problem, but thought I'd ask the question.

    Although I have a UPS/surge protector, I'd prefer to turn everything off (I've killed UPS batteries when I've been out of town during storms and they've cycled on-and-off repeatedly).

    Nah dude just shut it down and unplug it. The time and everything will be correct when you boot up. You won't even notice the diff.

    And there's no need to worry about eventually having to replace the battery either, it's one of those simple coin types that slide under a clip.
