Hey all,

I would like to schedule the opening and closing of specific applications at specific times.

The reason why I would like to do so is that I use alarm apps like Awaken and Aurora. However, they require that ‘Password while Screen-saver is running’ is disabled. I use a password protected screen-saver to prevent curios colleagues from poking my Mac when I’m out for lunch.

The developers have suggested that I run the specific alarm application when I need to and close it after the alarm has sounded. The password protection for the screen-saver will be enabled when the alarm app is closed. Is there any application that can schedule the alarm app to do so?

I have found apps like MacAT, Lingon & Cronnix. While they can open apps at specific time, I don’t think they can close apps at specific times. Well, at least I don’t know how to.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks guys!
