    Hello All,

    Can someone help me set the system so that my Mac mini will not wake up unless the power button is pressed?

    I have a mini set up on an entertainment console, and sometimes the kids hit the keyboard... other times it just seems to wake up on it's own.

    I have gone to system settings and I don't see anything to control "how" the system can be awakened from sleep.

    Thanks,
    R

    Within System Preferences there should be options under Energy Saver.

    "Should be" in terms of what Apple should have been there?

    I don't see this option...

    I'm not in front of my Mac right now so can't check, but from memory that's where it should be.

    I do appreciate the reply...I will keep looking and googling, and if you have a chance when you are in front of your Mac, I would love some confirmation that I am not crazy!

    Thanks,
