    Hi Forum,

    Can Automator start my computer in the morning and turn on Skyoe?

    Does anyone use automator? If so, can you share with me what you use it for. I have been researching it but am still unsure of it.-CFS

    Hi forum member ;)

    theres already a thread here about the uses for automator.

    i dont think you can schedule an automator action but you could set your Mac to startup at a certain time in the Energy Saver preferences, set your Mac to auto login (if you havent already done this) and add Skype as a login item in Account preferences. TIP: the short way to to add an app as a login item is to add it to the dock, then right click on it and choose "Open at Login".
