    Is there a good scheduler program out there for mac?

    What I'm trying to accomplish is to have certain program automatically run at a certain time of day, then quit automatically in a couple hours. Anybody know of some way I can accomplish this?

    I'm kind of new to macs so I dont have a whole lot of experience.

    You can use iCal to launch programs, I'm not sure about turning them off. In any event, you could write a very simple Applescript that would turn off the program, which could also be controlled by iCal.
