Once your computer is turned on, you can release the power button. Your computer will now go through a process of loading macOS or Windows. This process can take a few minutes. Once the process is complete, you’ll see the desktop on your screen.

Shutting Down Your Computer

If you’re going to be away from your computer for more than a few hours, it’s best to shut it down. A shutdown is a complete power-off. Your computer starts up faster after a shutdown because it doesn’t have to power up all your devices and load all your programs.

To shut down your computer, click the Apple icon in the upper-left corner of your screen and select Shut Down. If you have unsaved changes in any open documents, you’ll be asked if you want to save them.

It’s also a good idea to shut down your computer if there’s a chance of bad weather, such as a thunderstorm.
