Dear MACRUMOURSFORUM I have a idea. Its a little idea and I know one of you might be able to point me in the correct direction to perform the following operation efficiently; 1. Schedule the MAC osx machine (either a macbook, minimac, etc) to turn on at say... 8.45am 2. Schedule the MAC to play a video file (say a .mov or whatever) automatically at a certain volume, go to full screen, and loop all day. (with no display of loop, etc) 3. Schedule the MAC to shut down at 7pm. This mac will be connected to a Projector via VGA. The idea is that the video starts, loops all day and turns off. Any ideas, like how to do this with Automator, etc, would be seriously appreciated. Cheers, Alspants.
