To be honest - i don't think that exists in the Macbook....I know it does in the PC via BIOS settings - but in a Macbook - you can't access the BIOS (EFI on Macbook) - I could however, be wrong...

I've been searching the forum and apparently there's an option like this on a mac mini. And some other people have been complaining that their macbook has been powering up when connecting to a power source at random times. I actually want to make this happen but in a controlled manner.

Go to System Preferences > Energy Saver and select Start up automatically after a power failure

There is no such option on a macbook pro. Is there a work around to get this feature?

Did you solve the issue?
I have the same kind of question: I have two MacBooks, one from 2009 and one from 2012. Both are up-to-date installed with OS 10.8.2. Both MacBooks are not connected to a UPS and as far as I can remember, they never were.
Today I found out that the 2009 MacBook has the "Start up automatically after a power failure" option, while the 2012 MacBook does not have it. To make it more complex, my college also has a 2012 MacBook, but with OS 10.7 and he does have the "Start up automatically after a power failure" option. I'm lost...
Does someone know what can cause these differences?
