How to schedule Mac sleep and auto-on Mac (macOS)
1. Discover on your Mac System settings and select menu item Energy saving;
2. Click on the inscription “Schedule…»(In the lower right part of the window);
You will see a small window with two settings. The meaning of the first of them is Turn on or wake up – clear from the name. To use this option, check the box, select the interval (every day, on workdays, on weekends or on a specific day of the week) and time. After the setting is ready, confirm your choice by clicking on the OK button.
Example of using the function: Mac automatically turns on every working day at 10 o’clock.
If you check the box next to the highlighted in gray (i.e. inactive) item Sleeping mode, you will get access to a useful dropdown menu. There are three teams waiting for you – besides Sleep mode, this Reload and Turn off. Select the desired one and, as in the first case, specify the desired days and time.
Confirm your choice by pressing the button OK.
Example of using the function: automatic shutdown of the Mac at 00-00 every day.
To undo the changes, just go back to Settings → Energy saving → schedule and uncheck the corresponding boxes.
