I have answered this question before.

Go to the Sims 2 on Supercheats,go into hints and there are posted times for where to get the points.

You get mechanical points by doing "mechanical things" such as repairing a shower, computer, sink etc.

Another, faster way of getting them is to buy a bookcase. Then click the bookcase and select "Study..." and then select "Mechanical".

Note : It may be harder to get mechanical points by studying if you're near the top of the mechanical skill bar.

"Your new Goal is:

'Earn Mechanical 5, break into the Penthouse, and steal the Blueprints.'

The Concierge will tell you now that: 'Psst!... for your information, it seems
Alfred has been sneaking out of his room every night between 6 p.m. and 10
p.m. to recharge his batteries. Just thought you should know.'

This is a vital piece of information. Once you earn the 5 Mechanical skills,
you only can access the Penthouse between 6.00 p.m. and 10.00 p.m., even
though you can 'hack' your way into the Penthouse lift at any time of the day
or night.

There is no way to 'earn' Mechanical skills except by finding them in the
hotel at various locations. They appear only for 8 hours in any location, so
you have to be diligent in this 'treasure hunt' if you wish to obtain them as
quickly as possible. All Skill points in every category are 'earned' in this
manner, and they appear to be offered in an entirely random sequence. You
could find 3 Charisma Skill Points before finding more than 1 Mechanical Skill
Point. Look at the Skill Point Calendar for all Skills. I have included a
list of the days, times and locations where Mechanical Skill Points are found

"If you are impatient to find 5 Mechanical Skills, here is a schedule for
finding them:

On Monday at 8.00 a.m. in the northwest corner of the Government Laboratory
On Monday at 4.00 p.m. at the shrine dedicated to Auda Sherif in Mamma Hogg's
On Tuesday 12.01 a.m. in the blue corrugated carton in the Secret Warehouse
On Tuesday at 4.00 p.m. in the Furnace Room, above the pallet
On Wednesday at 4.00 p.m. in the Vault, above the pallet
On Thursday at 8.00 a.m. in the Furnace Room above the pallet
On Thursday at 4.00 p.m. next to the stairs in the Basement
On Friday at 12.01 a.m. in the Freezer
On Saturday at 12.01 a.m. in an alcove in the Atrium Centre
On Saturday 4.00 p.m. in the Government Laboratory

Remember that this list gives the earliest time that the Skill Point can be
found in that specific location and that each Skill Point will remain in any
given location for a total of 8 hours."

Okay so I have multiple problems here with mechanical 5... Help?!?!
1. A while back, I was able to collect mechanical points, now for some reason, I can't collect them. I looked in the right places at the right times and I still can't collect any.
2. How do I know how many mechanical points I have?
3. How do I enter a cheat code?
4. Is there another way I can collect mechanical 5 other than finding them?
