    Sorry should have said Automator...

    Ok so what I am trying to do is setup a process to download any new files (ones I dont have yet but dont delete any from my folder that are no longer availible) from a remote folder (available at a simple Http address) every saturday morning at like 9am or so...

    Any advice on getting this setup... I was trying to do it as a workflow

    Also will I need to be on my computer for this to work or can I set it to come off of sleep to pic it up?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Chuck

    I don't know how to setup what you want to do, but I can help with the second question. Once you set the process, you can let Automator take care of "doing it" and set it into iCal to run that automator workflow (you can set it up as an application so iCal opens the app and it does it). To get your computer off sleep so its available to do this, you can go to power management from the system preferences.
