As pending events approach their trigger time, Power Manager will display a notification. The notification provides users with the opportunity to response to, and plan for, the pending trigger.
The notification displays the event’s name and trigger time. The notification also shows a count down to the trigger time.
If the user has the appropriate authorisation rights, the pending event can be adjusted, or cancelled. See the section called “Altering Pending Events”.
Altering the Notification Period
The notification period can be altered. The notification period is the time before a pending trigger that users are notified.
Procedure 6.1. Alter the Notification Period
Launch Power Manager.
Select the menu item:> .
Choose the appropriate notification period.
Click the Apply button () to save any changes.
Not all Power Manager events will display a notification. Events can be marked as quiet. If an event is marked as quiet, Power Manager will surpress any notifications it would normally issue.
Some of Schedule Assistant’s workflow tasks create events that are quiet. Quiet events are useful for events that do not affect the availability of the host Mac and perform actions such as mirroring files or running scripts.
Enabling this behaviour on individual events requires an alternative event creation tool, such as Power Manager Professional.
