    i have this workflow that runs another workflow to be starts on startup and i have it so that my computer starts up at 5:30am so it can run at that time so i don't have to get up so early. everything runs flawlessly the only part that doesn't work right now is that i have to hit the play button for it to work and i want to see if anyone knows how to make it play by itself without me having to hit it so i can stay asleep for another hour.

    found out

    i found out that if i saved it as a plugin for ical and set my computer and ical to both wake from sleep and set the alarm at the same time it runs the workflow all by itself. FANTASTIC!!

    Haha, solved your own problem, good job!

    I was going to say it should have some way to save as an app or something, not just stay in the Automator window waiting for you to hit "play" or "run"
