It might not be apparent how to power a Mac on or off if you’re a first-time user. Plus, what do you do if the machine is frozen? Here’s how to turn your Mac on and off no matter which model you own.

How to Turn On Your Mac

To turn on your Mac, all you have to do is press the “Power” button. The placement of the Power button depends on which computer you own. Steps for almost every Mac model can be found below.

If the machine is asleep, you can usually wake it up by pressing any key, lifting up the lid of the MacBook, or pressing the trackpad.

MacBooks with Touch ID Sensor

If you have a MacBook Pro (2016 or later) or a new MacBook Air (2018 and newer), you’ll notice there’s no physical Power button on your laptop. Instead, the power button is embedded in the Touch ID button, right next to the Touch Bar.

MacBooks with Function Keys

If you have an older MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air, you’ll see a physical row of function keys (F1 to F12) along the top of the keyboard. At the right end of the keyboard is the physical Power button. Holding down this button will turn on your MacBook.

Alternatively, if you’re using the 2018 MacBook Pro or 2018 MacBook Air, pressing any key on the keyboard or clicking the trackpad will turn on the computer.

Mac mini

On the Mac mini, the Power button is a circular button at the back of the computer. It’s on the left side of the computer’s ports.
