Did you do a custom install of the system and selected the energy saver control panel and extension. It may not be possible to autostart a IIci.

the energy saver extension doesn't work on older macs like the IIci

Is there a shareware program that would work?

not the answer you want to hear, but the hardware on the older macs prevent them from starting up on their own.  Really nothing you can do except for using an expensive hardward solution like the PowerKeyPro... even that probably wont work though...

Just what I didn't want to hear. Time for a new computer. Thanks!
