Energy Saver doesn't recognize Mondays.....

Message #1 - Posted 2003/12/22 - K9660R

I've posted this a while back and never got any response. I was thinking this just may be a fluke but it still continues, and has ever since I installed Panther back in Oct.

I set the "schedule" in the Energy Saver preference to start up every day at 7:30am. It never works on Monday morning though. Works fine on Tues-Sunday.

Everything else that I know to check appears to be fine. Anyone else experience this?

You now I have noticed the same thing on my PowerMacG4. It won't shut down on Mondays, but works fine up until Saturday.

It appears then that this is not an isolated thing then. Sounds like a potential bug in the Monday pref. on the Energy Saver.....

I didn't notice it before this week, but it happened on my machine today.

There's a discussion of this in Apple's support forums:

One person says trashing some prefs files helped, but I haven't tried it.
