For home and small business customers, we recommend Power Manager. Power Manager includes a Schedule Assistant. The assistant provides a quick and easy way to create your own tailored energy saving schedule.
With Power Manager's Schedule Assistant, you can create events that:
- Power on and power off your Mac at specific times.
- Launch applications, open documents, and run AppleScripts.
- Provide a better sleep after inactivity behaviour.
- Schedule back-ups to local hard disk drives.
- Put your Mac to sleep for short durations, such as over lunch.
