    I've been asking this around many different places today, I'm just totally sick of it and want it fixed. Anyway... on to my issue.

    Any applications that needs to wake up my Mac just won't. I have no clue what is wrong and why these won't work.

    For example:
    -Awaken (for alarms)
    -EyeTV3 (for show recordings)

    I really want to get this fixed. Now I can't rely on Awaken or EyeTV to really do anything unless I'm there waking up my Mac on time. And I don't want to leave my Mac awake 24/7. So, any ideas?

    I could have sworn that nothing could wake a Mac from sleep. I know I'm wrong; I think it will wake for remote access, but I don't believe an application can.

    Ya, apps can. I actually just got a reply from Jerry Brace (Awaken dev) on Twitter. I'm trying his idea (delete some file). I hope it works :p.
