Hey all I'm hoping someone out there has learned something useful about launchd, plist's, and timing scripts. I have a rather simple script that I was trying to make run on a schedule through launchd (15 min to be exact) mainly to get to learn the system. I'll have to post the code later since I'm currently on a Win comp at work and it won't read the scpt file. Anyway, the problems... I finally got through it all enough to load the script into launchd through a valid plist ("verified in Lingon" though I don't think was necessary since all Lingon did was add fields withe "false" values). The jist though is the plist file (I've named com.nathan.messagealert.plist to keep the *^#4& formatting going) calls on an Applescript (which runs perfectly fine in the editor or even as an app on startup) which it should then run on a "StartInterval" schedule of 900 sec. Now, I read and found the proper way of making the script an executable file which made it load but it's acting very funny. Remember the time schedule of 15 min I mentioned?? Well, when the script was loaded it kept running and running and running...you get the idea. It wouldn't stop until I killed it. Any thoughts on why this would react this way? Is a scpt file ok? Does the scpt need a "quit" or "exit" at the end of it? I'm just analyzing the possibilities... Anyway, I'll post the code when I get home. I'd appreciate anything!
