LaunchOnTimeis a utility for opening files (including apps), folders or executing AppleScripts (optionally emailing results) at specified times.

Drag and drop files or use the "Browse" button to add files to the list window. Then select one or more items and use the "Date-Time" selector to schedule their launch date. If the file is an AppleScript it will be executed, otherwise the file will be opened in the default application for the type of file. Click the "Start" button to run the schedule.

Various options are available using the Preferences window, such as setting the option to repeat the schedule more...

Great idea. "at(1)" was added to UNIX in the early '70s to give us this functionality. :)

Doing a "man at" in Terminl on Mac OS X to find information on this command gives:

"at, batch, atq, atrm are all disabled by default on Mac OS X. Each of these commands depend on the execution of atrun(8) which has been dis-abled due to power management concerns. Those who would like to use these commands, must first (as root) re-enable atrun by running:

launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.atrun.plist"

which seems to imply a possible implication when the computer is sleeping. Do you know if these commands work when the system is asleep? This is the issue this update to LaunchOnTime addressed.

Anyway, more enhancments to the program are planned and constructive feedback is welcome! Thanks, Joe.

OK, I see what they're getting at: they would need to integrate "at" into "cron" or run it independantly of "cron" to avoid the possibility of it waking up the disk drive every time it's run. that's the "power management concerns" they're talking about.

The traditional implementation of "at" is pretty inefficient in any case. I'm surprised they were still running it as a separate process.
