    Interesting. It goes off when you move it, and it turns off when you put it back down. I'd ideally like it to keep running until a serial code is put in or something. Not bad though - good find.

    If you move the book very slowly and keep it level you can pretty much bypass the alarm.

    This needs some polish, though.. the screen flash is what's so cool.. but it's a great start :D

    :cool: very cool idea..

    but i'll wait for a free version thanks! Not worth the download if it only works for 10 mins!

    silence, this isnt ialertu its a different person, its built in apple script and it pretty basic in its coding, but has potential to be like ialertu except hopefully none of this paying

    PS OPEN SOURCE ROCKS

    Well I guess he is referring to the iAlertU app (which does have the 10 min limit) and not about the iBook/powerbook app this article is referring to.

    Ah, I never really read the iAlertU thing because I don't have a MBP.

    I think the alarm is cool, but all it takes to avoid it is shut the lid and then it sleeps and bing bang boom.

    calebjohnston, i was just going to post that. :p it'd be nice if somehow the alarm wasn't deactivated when the lid was shut. then, i'd be more interested in this app/script.

    Yes mam, it would be much better if that was the case.

    Guys ive made modifications to the orginal code and added some features like growl notifications and some cosmetic clean up, im currently working on removing the dock icon and adding a passcode to disable the alarm instead of the current method.

    the idea of disabling sleep when the ibooks lid is closed, its a idea that im well aware of but i cant code that kinda stuff but if anyone wants to help out and look at the code and tell me how to add that, well that would be fantastic.

    PS. what can u expect for a beta version and free software
