Mac Restart overview

Mac Restart is the modern macOS application to restart the Mac when unattended under different conditions.

Mac restart is able to use 'Soft Restart' and 'Hard Restart' to restart your Mac. The 'Soft Restart' is issued at finder level and ask to all the running app to quit before restart the Mac

The 'Hard Restart' is issued at system level and offers a very low level of probability of having the restart interrupted by an app refusing to quit. The ‘Hard Restart’ uses the latest Apple XPC technology (the recommended way now by Apple, secure and digitally signed, to escalate privileges for sys tasks) to provide admin right actions. It allows to restart your Mac in a secure way, just providing admin right one time only at installation.

Mac Restart can now work also as a status menu only application, always available from the menu also when in background and without showing any window to just silently waiting in the background.

Mac Restart can provide what others tools can’t. Just an example: it can help a user start a download of big files over the net in the night and have the Mac automatically restarted when the download is finished.

Mac Restart is customizable using an easy to use setting setup panel (no coding or editing of script required). It's small, fast, simple and reliable and now more stable then ever and fully complaint with the latest macOS 10.11 and is fully optimized for use with macOS 11 Big Sur.

Mac Restart is fully customizable. The user can choose to shutdown the Mac:

  • On a scheduled plan
  • On a specific date and time
  • When a generic file is removed or moved on your Hard Disk
  • When a download is finished: using Safari using Firefox or Camino or Netscape using Speed Download
  • At launch time to use it via Apple iCal
  • When a keyword is found inside a continuously checked web wage
  • Using the scheduled plan the user can set any repetitive interval, selecting a time and a day of the week or - any day or any weekday and so on. With the 'On date' option the user can specify the preferred date and time.

Why do we need to restart our Macs? We might want our Macs to shut down after finishing a task, but there are free ways of doing that. Also, during a restart, isn't the user password required to mount a FileVault disk? If so, the bulk of the restart is pending your return to the computer. So what is the point?

I don't get it: If I go into System Preferences and Energy settings I find 'Schedule' and it does the same. Always has been a part of SOS X. For free...!

You don't even need to use crons if you don't want to - just set an iCal alarm to fire an AppleScript.
