    Is your power button broken? Or is there another reason why you want to be able to do this? Not sure what you mean by “like password” — that makes no sense to me. Could you explain?
    If your power button is broken, then I would take the machine in to a shop or Genius Bar immediately. See episode 600.
    My only other thought is that it could be a problem with your “System Management Controller.” Read the whole page at, particularly the part near the bottom about resetting it. But that only applies if your power button is “broken” and it happens to be this particular cause.
