Hello there...
I am trying to find a way to run an application right after my imac wakes from sleep mode. ( i am in 10.5.8)
{I know I can do that when the computer starts up from shutdown (in the login items of my account in user preferences)}.
Can I use an apple script that "understands" that the computer has just recovered from sleep mode and run the app that I want? (the application is actually something I created with automator)
What the script would be like... is there a command that knows when the computer wakes from sleep?
QUOTE Thanks
