    Macaroni has done a nice job of managing the running of cron scripts on my Mac for years, but as of May has become abandonware.

    Mac OS X has daily, weekly, and monthly self-maintenance scripts built into it. The largest issue is that they are scheduled to run in the middle of the night; if the computer is off, they simply do not run. Macaroni monitored the scripts and ran them as necessary when the timing was missed.

    Does anyone know of software that will allow this to occur? Thanks!

    I am not sure about from off, but I do know if my computer was sleeping when the Daily/Weekly/Monthly jobs were supposed to run, they run shortly after the system is woken up.
