Auto startup but not on Monday?

Message #1 - Posted 2004/03/01 - Quackers

Anyone else not get an auto start on Mondays? Every other day is fine.

Yes, this problem was one I experienced as well. I posted it to this newsgroup and to Macfixit back in Nov./ Dec. There appears to be some kind of bug in the Energy Saver that doesn't recognize Mondays.

Anyway, I switched to iBeeZz
( http://www.ibeezz.com/en/ ) which has worked flawlessly for several months now. Also gives you many more options.

Another problem I had with the schedule in the Energy Saver was trying to disable it or turn it off. Twice I left to go out of town, unchecked the "startup computer" button (even set the times to all zeros) and I came home days later only to find my computer had turned on anyway. I would check the Energy Saver pref. and some how it magically checked itself back on....

Thought I was going nuts. Thanks for the tip and heads-up about disabling the startup. I take it you figured out how to turn it off, or did the ibeezz app take care of that too?

I haven't even used Apples Energy Saver since using ibeezz. I gave up on it's reliability and haven't even opened that preference pane in 2 months.
