Perfect timing. I was just wanting to set up a cron tab for waking my imac when it goes to sleep. However, after reading the article you stated cron will not wake a computer from sleep. Bummer. I have iCal Calling iTunes installed and it will not run most of the time when the computer is asleep either, so I wanted to write a script to wake the computer, What about a simple AppleScript to just start some activity on the computer? Will it run if the computer is asleep. Yeah, I know iCal Calling iTunes is an AppleScript, but I was hoping to use cron or something as a workaround.
