Hi all, This might be way off base, because I know very little about writing applescript and programming. I am just wondering if this is even possible. I use this script written by Andreas Amann that creates an ical event to send emails at a scheduled time. http://homepage.mac.com/aamann/Mail_Scripts.html Sometimes I need messages to fire off in the middle of the night to catch people in different time zones, and it works flawlessly. The only problem is that I must leave my computer on without going to sleep all the time for the messages to be sent. I know I could set the computer to wake at certain times, but it's a pain in the neck to change that every time I make a scheduled email. Also, if I have more than one in a 24 hour period, I can only set the computer to wake once. So, I came across this setting in the energy save tab that allows incoming network connections to wake the computer from sleep. I'm sure you already see what I'm getting at.... Is there any way to sort of "attach" this service to a bonjour item and get the computer to wake up when the script runs? Maybe a request to share a printer connection could be added to the script to wake up the machine. What I was thinking is that this could run from something like a linux wall wart. I wouldn't know where to start, but I'd like to know if it's possible.
