    I would like to have a specific dmg dismounted, every time I put mac on sleep mode or turned off.

    I am not sure if this can be done using an osx feature or using a third party application.

    It is a security matter and it is easy to forget to dismount a dmg with important files that I don't want anybody to see them.

    How can I do it?

    I use a great little app called DSW (Do Something When) - I use it to mount a shared dmg when I open iPhoto or Aperture for example (so that multiple users never try to access the library at the same time)

    I'm away from my Mac right now but I'm pretty sure you can set it to mount/unmount when your Mac sleeps or wakes

    Thanks for mentioning it. I 'll try it.

    Anyone with experience in osx Automator, to tell me if this task could be done easily with automator?
