  1. I'm a newbie when it comes to Applescript and was wondering if someone could help with a basic request. I need to write a small script to do the following: 1. Launch terminal 2. Run the 'Sudo -s' command 3. Enter the administrator password (in plain text) and then 4. run some sudo commands like "sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow HiddenUsersList -array-add administrator" I actually WANT the administrator password to be in the script in plain text even though I understand the security risks (I will literally be the only person to ever see the script). I've trawled forums all over but can't seem to find what I am looking for and cannot get it working by patching together the various commands I have found. Thanks in advance for any help you can give! Sean
