    Hi All,

    When you choose "Shut Down" from the Apple menu, does anyone know if it's possible to change the shutdown delay time (120 secs) to a lower value, or better still remove the need to confirm by clicking Shut Down again ?. I am running Panther. Thanks.

    Not that I know of... and I bet you'll hate me for saying this, but if you can, upgrade to Leopard when it comes out. Steve didn't reveal one of the top-secret features... in Leopard, it's down to 60 seconds! :rolleyes:

    Did someone say 60 seconds to shutdown in Leopard? :eek:

    Bodacious. I'm totally buying this new OS on day one. With my new Mail templates... ;)

    60 seconds to shutdown is logical. They did a straw-vote-study which showed Leopard users will be more decisive. ;)

    I could live with 60. 120 just seems unnecessary. Who sits around for 2 minutes pondering wether to shut down or not ?.
    So I guess there's no way to bypass the confirmation step altogether and have it shut down immediately on choosing Shut Down from the Apple menu ?.
