    Oh and for someone who's first language is not english, your grammar is GREAT. Your spelling however, needs improvement.

    Keep working at it :)

    So, essentially, you're wanting to change the behavior of the power button on your Mac. I looked around a bit, but haven't found any way of doing that. I did find a command line way of initiating a restart though.
    Code:
    shutdown -r now
    There's other arguments you can use. Enter the command man shutdown to read more about that. There's also a reboot command you can use. You might be able to tie this to a script, but not sure how you'd tie it to the power button.
