    Anyone know of an app to auto shut down your mac after it's done running a an
    iTunes playlist or letting another app run it's course? The Energy saver shut down schedule option is too rigid for me. Basically, I like to listen to a some music as I go to sleep and would love for my mac to shut itself down after it's finished with the playlist. If there isn't a program would anyone know of an applescript that would do that?

    Fiddle with Automator Im sure you can do it with that. Or you could just set system preferences to shut down the mac after a certain amount of time. You can even tell it when to start up ;)

    There's a little app called iSleep that does this.
    It's pretty useful.

    You can actually just do it in System Prefernces>Energy Saver>Schedule. That allows you to set it to sleep/shutdown/wake up/turn on.
