SleepWatcher - A utility to run tasks on sleep/wake
Authored by: dtrevas on Sep 11, '06 06:10:38AM
If this requires that you know how to use Terminal, why is it better than "pmset?" If you like the Terminal, open it up and type: man pmset and look at all you can do. It really, umm, ticks me off that the Energy Saver/Schedule Preference only allows one pair of wakeorpoweron/(sleep or shutdown) times. After all, it is the official GUI interface with pmset. With pmset, you can do anything you want! I was hoping someone was going to come up with a nice GUI app for this, but I might just have to do it myself, and it won't be pretty!

SleepWatcher - A utility to run tasks on sleep/wake

I just went searching for pmset documentation to see if I could get sleepwatcher functionality without a new install.

It seems that pmset and sleepwatcher do different things. pmset is a command-line tool for the energy saver prefs. It allows you to schedule a wake or sleep event. pmset does not seem to allow you to set a specific script or program to run on wake. sleepwatcher adds this capability.
