    You can't disable the power button without cutting wires. What are you trying to do?

    i think only disable in macos, at school classmates you just play so they go to the laptop and hitting the power key.
    (i have macbook white 2010, mac os 10.6.5)

    So don't leave your MacBook unattended.

    That doesn't make sense. If you don't leave your MacBook unattended, no one can press the power button. There's no "testing" to be done.

    After I knocked the teeth out of a few faces, I bet they'd be a lot less interested in my Mac's power button! No, you can't disable the power button without damaging your Mac. It's not a Mac vs Windows issue. It's a hardware issue.

    Read the thread I linked. There are a few tips there about how to delay the shutdown.
