Looks like a potential replacement for the excellent but 32-bit only "DoSomethingWhen" prefpane.

Although Task3 cannot be triggered by USB and the developer has not updated to provide a signed app, so Security Installation throws up a warning.

I've email the developer about USB triggers, so hopefully.

There's an app included in every modern Mac called Automator which does everything here for free.

I disagree. Automator must be invoked manually which, it appears, is not the requirement for this solution.

This is a great premise for an ap, that addresses a key use case I have because I don't have time to learn how to do it another way (suggestions?).

What I want is the ability to schedule launch and quit of an ap at specified time. Task3 has got the launch nailed, but the scheduled quit application doesn't work (tried on Macbook Pro/OS 10.6.2, Mac Mini Core Duo 10.5.8, and Macbook 10.4.?). Following instructions (and the documentation needs work, tho the developer admits his English is not so good) did not help. No other ap promises to do this that I am aware of without some scripting--which I have forgot everything I once knew.

Specifically, I am interested in running a torrent client at night, quiting and starting other aps in the morning, etc...). Can't get Transmission to quit, or any other ap.

So, dropped an email to dev last week...a new update came this week, but only addressed one of the two bugs (thanks for that, tho that didn't fix this issue:-)

Or you could just use iCal and alarms with AppleScript ala "tell application 'Transmission' to quit"
