    Hello, I have a question. I have 2 workflows that I have built through automator. I want them to start everyday at 4:00 and the other one to start at 22:00. The problem is that at those times, my mac would be asleep (or completely off) and automator would not run in those scenarios. I know the energy saver under system preferences has an option to wake up the computer but the problem is that it only gives me 1 option. So, I can either turn it on at 3:58 or at 21:58. I need to figure out how to get multiple wake up times for the mac (without purchasing any software).

    I have read some things on the internet about Pm set that would allow you to accomplish that. The problem is that I don't know how to use it. Is there a way to safely set this up with pm set? I have opened the terminal but I don't know how to use it. any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    By the way, I am using the latest Imac model 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 with OSX 10.8.3
