1. Linux on Mac Mini - Boot After Power Failure

    Sun 08 November 2009

    When using a Mac Mini as a server or router, it is very nice if the machine automatically boots if a power failure has occurred.

    User chirhoxi on the ubuntu forum found out how this can be achieved:


    Basically you need one of these commands:

    Original Mac Mini:

    setpci -s 00:03.0 0xa4.b=0

    Newer Mac Mini:

    setpci -s 00:03.0 0x7b.b=19

    These commands might not work with the latest Mac Minis but the thread discusses how to determine for yourself what the appropriate command is.
