auto wake from sleep - doesn't

Message #1 - Posted 2007/12/07 - Chris Brown

Hi,

I use Carbon Copy Cloner to do a daily backup t external HD, scheduled daily at 6:30. CCC will not force the system to wake from sleep, so System Prefs, Energy saver schedule is set to startup or wake from sleep every day at 6:15 , but this does not happen.

any thoughts on this?

Go to /Library/Preferences/System Configuration and find com.apple.AutoWake.plist. Trash it. Then go back to System Preferences and try setting the wake up scheduler again.

P.S. Especially with 10.5 out for less than six weeks, it's always a good idea to include with your questions what version of OS X you are running. These kinds of system configuration thingies can change considerably between versions.

Chris, worth checking that the automatic wake event is being scheduled as expected. The free Dashboard widget linked below shows your Mac's energy schedule.

Is anything other software on your Mac using your energy schedule? Other applications may be affecting it.

Just as Kir·ly asked, what version of the Mac OS are you using? Also knowing if your Mac is Intel or PPC based can be helpful.

Hope this helps,
