    Hi,

    I'm looking for a program that will schedule my Mac to wake up for 5 minutes, then go back to sleep if there is no activity, hourly mon-fri 8-5 - does anyone know of a program which will do this?

    * Launch System Preferences
    * Click “Energy Saver” (it’s the coiled eco-friendly lightbulb icon)
    * Click the “Schedule” button in the lower right portion of the preference pane
    * Set whether you want your Mac to sleep, wake, boot, shutdown, or whatever
    * Set the appropriate times
    * Click ‘OK’

    Thanks, I know about the built in power saver but there is not enough flexibility in the system to allow multiple wakeup/sleep schedules per day...

    Use that to wake the mac and set your power prefs to make it sleep if idle for x amount of time?

    But that will only wake it once per day.. I need it to wake up at 10, 11, 12, 1pm, 2, 3 & 4 for 5 minutes and then go back to sleep with an overall plan to keep it awake outside of that time.
