How do you or what is the setup to keep the (server) up from shutting down? It is not server yet but it might very likely become to serve few clients. But, once I get in in the morning its off. It's Sparc, Solaris 8 and I would like to keep it running over night but once it is not attended it shuts down. Would anyone know how to keep Sparc, Solaris 8 up and running 7/24? Thanks, gp

I know it gives you the option to diable this after a fresh install, but I think you can modify the /etc/power.conf file. This is the power.conf file from my 8 box that runs all the time.
