OSX "Restart Instead of Logoff" does not work.


In Deep Freeze Mac, it is possible to enable the "Restart instead of Log Out" switch which will allow the Mac to automatically restart when you log out of your account when Deep Freeze is enabled.  However, if the log out delay takes an extended amount of time, the Mac will finish the log out sequence but the reboot will not occur.


The Log Out Delay interval can be modified by editing the Preference list (plist) file for the Deep Freeze Control Panel and either adding in or modifying the "rebootDelaySeconds" entry.

Work Around

To change or add the "rebootDelaySeconds" plist value the following command can be run from the terminal:
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.faronics.dfxcontrol rebootDelaySeconds -integer 15
