Thank you for your swift reply Esther. This is clear and helpfull, and I will do as you suggest. Just allow me a few more questions: -is it definitely possible to activate, awaken the Mac remotely? I know it should be, but I wasn't able to. (Or can I handle remotely to let the screen go dark? I am a newbie. Do not know how far I can go in remotely managing their machine) -What does acquiring a licence improve or secure? Or doesn't it make a difference towards the functioning itself? I figure there must be somewhere a spreadsheet or list as to compare, could not find it yet. Thanks a lot! Eric

The country I live in is going in lockdown, I want to install for my parents a computer to be able to keep in touch with them. I am not aloud to enter the elderly home, they have no idea of computers so I want to handle everything remotely. I bought an Imac, can prepare it beforehand, then deliver it, assistents at the home will connect it. It is vital to get it as solid as possible. Doing some tests with it right now, I must say I am not convinced. It is defintely for private use, but if things work better with a licence I would prefer to do that, not seeing it work over there will only sadden and confuse them. I would need to start or awaken the computer at their side remotely daily, and be able to videoconference, bringing in videocalls from their grandchildren (Blizz?), have largesize messages for them. Is this realistic? Any good advice appreciated. Eric Jozef.
