    I'd like to schedule my MBP to start up at a certain time.
    However, Energy Saver tells me :"Scheduled start up will only occur when a power adapter is connected to your Mac".

    So my question is : is there a way to remove this limitation to have it start up even when not plugged?

    Thank you.

    edit: damn, didn't search thoroughly enough, there's already a thread about that. Sorry. :(

    Why do you want to do that? It doesn't take more than a minute to boot anyway. I always sleep my Mac so it takes 5 secs to continue working

    I don't really see how boot time has anything to do with scheduling and automation. :p
    But anyway, according to the other thread, it's not possible so...:(

    It doesn't take that long to boot anyway so why should it boot on its own? That's what I meant ;)
