I mean, it wont power up automatically if it's just connected to an outlet that turns on and offAh I thought you were interested in power up not down! Maybe another idea is a ups that you could remotely control - they link via USB to the mac and can tell it to shut down etc
um yes I see your point... sounds like only way is LAN wake up? Now I get the physical button thing below. Sounds unreliable. Are there any ways to Hotwire the power buttons and then use something like a IoT relay?I mean, it wont power up automatically if it's just connected to an outlet that turns on and off
only way to achieve that is to select "power up after power failure"
Here you go.. just ask Walker.Another theoretically possible solution: a small remotely accessible robot, which can be trained to approach MM and push Power On button on request (for convenience it can also be equipped with video camera).
BTW, the intuition tells me that there must be some micro relay in MM2018 somewhere inside, connected to its Power On button, and it can be triggered from the outside by properly placed external magnet, but it remains to be seen whether or not it is the case.
