When I have running processes on my terminal and I try to shutdown Mac, I get this window:

enter image description here

I want all running processes to terminate automatically when I shut down my Mac without being prompted the window shown above. Is there a way to do that?

I am using macOS Sierra 10.12.6.

Edit: My question is not about iTerm2 or closing tabs.


Terminal Preferences → Profiles, select the profile you're using (probably marked Default) in the sidebar on the left, then choose Shell. Under ‘Ask before closing:’, choose Never.

  • Or add Python to the list, and that way you don't prevent other process from accidentally terminating early that you may want a warning about. – courtsimas Nov 28 '19 at 3:20
