Scheduled wake/sleep stopped working after 10.4.4.

Message #1 - Posted 2006/01/14 - Gerard

Hello all,
After the latest update to 10.4.4 the Mac doesn't wake or sleep anymore at the times scheduled in Energy Saver. Is this a known problem? What alternatives do I have?

I have a backupscript for which I wake up the Mac for a short time when I am asleep.

Works fine on my G5. Have you tried resetting and/or trashing the prefs file (.plist) for Energy Saver or whatever it is?

Can't find a energy saver plist file. Where are these settings stored?

My Powerbook no longer asks for a password when it wakes from sleep.

Most of the Energy Saver prefs are here: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.PowerManagement.plist

Scheduled sleep/wake times are stored here: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.AutoWake.plist
