macOS High Sierra

Restart automatically after a power failure

You can set your Mac to always restart after a power failure. You might want to do this if you need to access your Mac remotely or it performs other functions for you when you’re not around.

You can set power options if your computer does not have a built-in battery. Portable computers such as the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air have built-in batteries.
