View Full Version : Needed help with Automator - System Prefs

Jul 16, 2009, 10:29 PM

I'm hoping to make an automator workflow that changes some system preferences that I have to change frequently in switching between a work computer and media center.

When it's used as a media center it's setup with a lower resolution to match the TV and the energy settings and screensaver are set to never be used when in media center mode.

Is there a way to use automator or even apple script to change the resolution, energy, and screensaver settings back to my normal settings?

I tried using the record option in Automator but it doesn't seem to recognize anything specific at all.

Could someone please help me set this up?

Funnily enough I'm trying to do a command in system preferences also but its not working, stops saying there was an error.

I just posted a thread here (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=8105379#post8105379)

See if anyone can help us
