Hard Restart on a MacBook Pro with no Power Button??

I just got a new Mac and it has no power button! So Far, I have only Restarted It.

I had the machine lock up on me and wondered, before it magically unlocked, what the heck I can do to Hard Restart it?

Secondly, once I shut it down gracefuly, how do I restart it?

Thanks.

The revolutionary project management tool is here!   Plan visually with a single glance and make sure your projects get done.

I've been asked to try to troubleshoot/repair a Macbook Pro 13" Retina (Early 2015). The keyboard does not work on the thing, but the trackpad mouse does. If I plug in a USB keyboard, that works.  I bought and replaced a keyboard/mouse trackpad cable as that seems to be the most common issue causing this symptom, but it has not helped.  I'm really not all that familiar at all with Macbook repair. I've tried a PRAM reset, and that doesn't seem to have done anything.

Anyone else have any ideas?  Would it be as simple as the internal keyboard being bad?  I just hate to spend money on parts that may or may not fix the issue.

setting up AirPort Time Capsule to only work as backup disk (and not as wifi router)

I want to use my Apple Time Capsule just as a network attached backup drive and not a router.

This what I have done:

(I got the following instructions off of apple.stackexchange.com)

To prevent the Time Capsule from acting as a WiFi access point or router, and use it only as a backup disk, just open the AirPort Utility app on a Mac (Applications -> Utilities -> AirPort Utility) and do the following:

1. Select your Time Capsule and hit Edit.
2. Go to the tab labeled Wireless
3. From the Network Mode pop-up menu, choose Off.
4. Click Update, and the base station will restart and load the new settings.

-  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  

OK. So I did all that. The AirPort Time Capsule restarted. But now the computer cannot find it when I go in to the AirPort Utility.

Oh boy. So now what did I do?

I think that the instructions that I got from that website lead me on the wrong path.

An office of 9 Macs. All up to date OS wise. All are joined to the domain xxxxxx.local and can log on and authenticate as domain users.

Connecting to the server to access a share  brings this message: There was a problem connecting to the server. URLs with the type "smb:" are not supported.

Only happening on one Mac. Any ideas? I've removed it and re-added it to the domain fine!!! It picks up and IP address just fine but SMB seems problematic. I had been fine for the past 10 days since I bought and installed it...

Thanks.

A MacBook 6.1, white body, Intel core 2 duo processor, 2gb; currently has OSX 10.6 installed.
The OS needs to be wiped out due to bad malware.
It does not have a recovery partition.
Boot from a OSX 10.6 install disc, and  after selecting the preferred language, it displays, can not be installed on this device.

Not sure what else can be done.  

Thanks for any help!

I currently use Apple Magic Trackpad with a Lenovo 8" tablet (Android 5.1) for a customized field Astronomy setup. I'm looking for a very specific size and resolution (7.75" to 8",  1024x768 ) to replace the current tablet, but have found that Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility is spotty at best. Compatibility varies not just within versions of Android but also within point versions and also manufacturers. I'm trying to find a method to predict Bluetooth Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility within a certain device without having to actually have the device in my possession to test it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have an iMac running Sierra. This is connected to a network printer in a small office. The network printer has a static IP address. The other Macs in-network, have no issues printing to this device at any time.
On the iMac in question, my client is running Parallels with Windows 8.1 installed. Simply put, they can print from the OSX side only when Parallels is closed. After you open the virtual machine, the printer simply goes to Offline and cannot be connected to. There is no problem printing in the virtual environment.
Obviously, they can close Parallels to print to get by, but ultimately this is a system that did work up until a week or two ago. I have reinstalled the latest printer drivers from the manufacturer in OSX. I have also found many, many forums addressing this exact issue. Some dating far back, but none of the solutions see relevant to my scenario. The client believes they may have changed a setting in Parallels inadvertently. This is plausible but honestly, I am a PC/Network guy and do not interact much with OSX.
Ultimately we just want them to be able to print again normally in OSX and Parallels simultaneously.
