Power Manager 5.8.0 Released

We are pleased to announce the launch of Power Manager 5.8. This update adds support for running Shortcuts as part of a schedule.

Shortcuts can be scheduled to run in a wide range of situations, including on-demand, once, daily, after inactivity, on log-in, and when the battery level drops. Additionally, this update includes a bug fix for missing properties in the Open Scripting Architecture (OSA) interface.

Power Manager requires macOS 10.12 or later.

Updating Power Manager

Power Manager will automatically check for updates every so often, so there is nothing to do. The update will automatically be offered to you during the next few weeks.

If you want to update to the latest Power Manager now, use the Check for Updates menu item in the Power Manager menu. In case of problems, please follow the manual update steps.
