Hi, I doubt you need to worry, but there isn't much you can do othger then pulling the hard drive out first.

Perhaps i should repost this question and delete the problem with my particular computer because it is distracting from my onlyest question:
How should one safeguard, secure, protect their Mac, when they must take it in to a 'repairman' who may or may not be trustworthy?
I like the answer, 'Don worry bou it'. As far as it goes. Bu i was hoping for something more to bolster my confidence.

Certainly feel free to post another query if you wish.
Well, there isn't much you could do about a tracking device, & wihout it starting, I see no other way to protect everything on the HDD without pulling it... unless you maybe already have Filevault setup on it.

1. Try to ensure he is trustworthy by only using an Apple Store or registered dealer for the repair.
2. Clone you entire hard drive to an external hard disk and delete all your personal stuff from your Mac before handing it in. When you get it back you can reload those files back again.

I agree i should take it to a registered authorized Apple repair place. But even then, are my fears justified. Don't people worry about handing their computer over to a repairman whose character they can't be sure of? Oh well, i guess i'll jus havta risk it.
Thanky u both.
