    I was wondering if I could use automator to open and maximize iCal at 5AM every morning.

    I don't always remember to open the calendar and place it on top before I go to bed.

    If I lose perspective and get off track first thing in the morning, the rest of the day I'm playing catch-up to make up for that lost time.

    Thanks

    Der. For some reason I didn't process that I could just open a file (in this case iCal) at a scheduled time.

    Thanks for pointing it out!

    If you're looking for lots of time based things, the Alarm Clock Pro app is somethign to look at as it gives a decent amount of things you can do for a given alarm.
