    I have my main Mac in my bedroom. I like having it announce the time during the day but at night it wakes me up. I can manually turn it off at night but sometimes I forget.

    Is there a way to have it automatically turn off the Announce Time feature overnight and then automatically come back on in the morning?

    TIA

    Set it to sleep after a period of inactivity.

    I believe this is doable, but it requires a little AppleScript and some means of firing the AppleScript on a schedule. iCal fills this second requirement nicely. However, I don't know exactly what commands need to go in the script. Not helping matters is that I'm not at a Mac :eek:

    Sleep

    I actually want to keep the Mac awake. It has our main iTunes library on it as well as other services. I let the screen go to sleep but the Mac stays busy doing things at night.
