    Is there any way to automatically get my mac to wake from sleep and start playing music in iTunes at a certain time? I want it to act like a radio alarm clock basically with my music.

    I know that in windows you would probably do this with scheduled tasks - is there anything similar in mac os?

    How about using Energy Saver settings in System Prefs to get the Mac to wake, then cron an applescript to run two minutes later to start iTunes and play a song.

    The method will most likely work, but my Applescript isn't up to it. Anyone else?

    Couldn't you do this via iCal, though, instead of using 3rd party apps?
