I work at a store, which sells Apple computers.
I’m trying to find a way to close all open programs after a few minutes. It’s because of our Shop Demo Account for customers. After opening all windows, it’s quite messy and I want to get a clean user experience.
All I would need is to close all windows. It should work like the command:
killall -u admin
BUT without admin permission
AND after 1 min,
WITHOUT user interaction.
Maybe, there is a way to: close all windows and programs, without showing something like "do you really want to", log out the demo account, and reload.
I found this, after searching some time, but I don't know if that's what I was looking for and how to make it work:
Apple Script Log Out:
on run tell application "System Events" to log out end run
You can wrap this up in a bash alias using the osascript command: alias maclogout="osascript -e 'tell application \"System Events\" to log out'"
It is the same as clicking " > Log out [username]...", and will logout after a 2 minute wait
This is easily combined with the sleep command: alias delayedlogout="sleep 3600; maclogout"
..or could be combined into a single alias:
alias delayedlogout="sleep 3600; osascript -e 'tell application \"System Events\" to log out'"
Could someone please give some advice? Thanks!
