I am trying to remotely enable (and stop) AirPlay mirroring from a Mac mini on my network. I was able to use Automator to create a program (all it does is run an AppleScript) that does the following: Code: tell application "System Events" tell process "SystemUIServer" click (menu bar item 1 of menu bar 1 whose description contains "Displays, AirPlay Off") click menu item "Downstairs TV" of menu 1 of result end tell end tell There is another code for "Bedroom TV" and then one that turns off the AirPlay mirroring. I saved three programs and when I run them by double clicking on them, they work. I came across a post (don't have the link) that can trigger things based on notes in the Notes.app (with the idea being that by adding a note on my phone or ipad, it will sync back to the computer that is also running the Notes.app and trigger something). The code for that is as follows: Code: on run -- just here to get things started... end run on idle tell application "Notes" if exists note "AirPlay upstairs" then delete note "AirPlay upstairs" tell application "~/prog.AirPlayBedroom.app" activate end tell else if exists note "AirPlay downstairs" then delete note "AirPlay downstairs" tell application "~/prog.AirPlayDownstairs.app" activate end tell else if exists note "AirPlay off" then delete note "AirPlay off" tell application "~/prog.AirPlayOff.app" activate end tell else if exists note "Shut down" then delete note "Shut down" tell application "Finder" to quit else if exists note "Go to sleep" then delete note "Go to sleep" tell application "Finder" to sleep else if exists note "Restart my mac" then delete note "Restart my mac" tell application "Finder" to restart end if end tell return 1 end idle Ignore the "~/", I've just removed the full path to shorten it up. The Shut Down, Go to sleep, and Restart my my mac commands all work. The three airplay commands work in that they successfully trigger the app to run. I can see the Airplay Menu open and I can see the Downstairs TV item get highlighted. The problem is that nothing happens (as if it's not making that second click) for all three of my programs. Would anyone know why that would happen?
