Schedules daily sleep and wake times for your Mac.

What is iBeeZz for Mac

iBeeZz allows you to setup when your Mac must sleep, wake up, shutdown, startup, restart, etc. You can execute any Automators, AppleScripts, open any files, launch any applications. No matter what you ask iBeeZz to load, from documents to applications to compiled AppleScripts, they will be launched, opened, or executed at the right moment.

Wake up with iTunes....
Select a playlist in iTunes and sleep soundly. iBeeZz will wake you up slowly with some good music. Thanks to a controlled fade in, you won't get an earful of music early in the morning.

Be alerted when your Mac needs to stop you working....
If you are working and if your Mac has to sleep, shutdown or restart, iBeeZz will alert you, letting you dismiss the alert or ignore the event.

I had the problem with v2.9.1 (2090103) for a few days, it rejects my perfectly legitimate license, and every few minutes there's a popup window keeps nagging about there's a new version of 2.9.1 that I should download it! So I wrote an email to iBeeZz dev and explained that the new update won't accept my license. The head of the dev team Olivier (a.k.a. beeloo) respond to my email very quickly, told me there's some issue with the version I've downloaded, and he asked me re-download and try it again. This time v2.9.1 (2090104) did solve my problem, and accepted my license right away. I am very grateful that he respond and solved my problem in very timely way. I became a fan of iBeeZz about 10 years ago still in college, and later bought my license back in 2007. I've been really appreciated that the devs of iBeeZz keep this utility update from time to time. Being a Mac user for almost 13 years, I've been very sad to see a lot of great Mac apps abandoned by its dev! Just name a few: Sidenote (I happily substituted with CloudJot about two years ago, now it's also an abandonware), MenuCalendarClock iCal (hasn't been update six years), Baseline (disk scanning utility, similar to WhatSize but blazing fast scanning speed, also abandonware now, incompatible on the latest OS X), Corkboard (hasn't been update), Billable/Profit Train (same billing app, latest update was a year ago), Overflow (no recent update)....now they all become some distant memories, either they no longer works on the latest OS X, or they work OK but become fossils with no updates for years. I hope iBeeZz team will not give up this very useful utility and brings out more updates in the near future, possibly a new v3.0 too.

Doesn't work for me. All I want is for my Mac to shut down at the same time every night, even if it's sleeping. If the Mac is already off, I don't want it to turn on. (The built-in Energy Saver doesn't do this.) If I set iBeezz to "wake if needed" and the Mac is off at the scheduled time, it gets started up: WRONG! Conversely, If I DON'T set iBeezz to "wake if needed" and the Mac is asleep at the scheduled time, it doesn't shut off. Time to try Power Manager (at double the price). iMac G5, Leopard.

There's a strange behavior I like to report. A year ago I've noticed my PowerBook G4 (Titanium 1Ghz) developed some audio problem. If I listen to anything on my computer, iTunes, QuickTime, or YouTube, you name it - the audio would lost after I moved my mouse or press a key or press an on-screen button, but if I plugin a headphone jack into the port, the sound would come back again before I make another move. I thought nothing but maybe the computer is getting old, maybe the phone jack port has some loose connection problem - like other users has experienced on the Apple forum. Couple days ago I had some other problems and I looked into the Console window, I saw a lot of error logs from iBeeZz. I haven't been use iBeeZz lately, but it was on my startup app item. The error messages of iBeeZz seems none-stop by every second on the log, and it kept complaining about it couldn't find the directory of this certain file that belongs to iBeeZz. So I uninstalled iBeeZz and it's associated files from my PB right away. After it's gone from my system, Voila! The audio came back right away and it has been steady like it should, and no more losing sound again. I am not sure why uninstall iBeeZz would cured my audio problem, but I am sad that iBeeZz is such a good tool, but I cannot have it on my PB until someone look into this problem and fix it.

11/21/08 Still no response. A shame, because this is great software, saddled with bad (not original) ownership. It continues to lose my registration number, and I get no response when I email the current ownership. Read the reviews on this site and on VersionTracker - I'm not the only customer to be disrespected by this company. My recommendation: Avoid this software like the plague - its current owners don't give a crap about their customers. I've emailed them repeatedly about my problems, and they never reply. They just don't care. Neither should you.

I continually send email to the publishers on my problem with iBeeZz (it loses the registration info after restarts). The current publishers of iBeeZz just don't give a crap about their customers. It's a great product, saddled with lousy ownership. I recommend waiting till the software is sold to someone who gives a damn about the customer before buying. I have sent numerous emails to these jerks about my problem, with no answer. This is a great piece of software, but you need to avoid it until it's picked up by someone who gives a damn about it, and about its customers.

Save your money. I paid for registration over a week ago and emailed numerous times yet received no response. I will be calling my CC to reverse the charge. Program seems to work fine, but after the trial period, even though it is paid for, not having the serial number does me no good. Stay away.

I have been using iBeeZz 2.5.3 and love it. It starts up my Mac desktop that is upstairs in the office, opens iPhoto and iTunes so I can share my photos and music with my laptop downstairs, and shuts down at night. It is really convenient and easy to use. I hated the nag screen so I decided to purchase it. However, after paying through PayPal, it has been 4 days and I haven't gotten a license number via email to unlock the utility and my 30 day trial is over. I have sent 4 emails and even logged onto the forum and asked how to get a license number and NO ONE has responded. It is a great utility that I will have to cancel payment on because the customer service is nonexistent.

Wow! Back from a long nap. Glad to see it being developed again especially since I paid for it before it went to "sleep". But I'm not so sure that it is as useful for me in Tiger and possibly Leopard as it was in Panther and below. Time (and further development?) will tell.

The most annoying piece of nagware I've ever seen. Install the app and it nags. Open the preference pane - it nags. Change any setting (and you have to unless you want your mac to shutdown at 2300 and restart at 0700) and it nags. Quit and it nags. Restart, reboot or login and it nags. Even my wife hated it. 30 days free trial? Lasted less than 3 hours.

As far as I'm concerned, this program is the ONLY one that can actully wake up your Mac from DEEP SLEEP. If anyone knows of another program that can do that, please let me know, because I feel kind of bummed too, that this program doesn't work properly on Tiger 10.4.2... To those who have previous versions of OSX; Panther or Jaguar, I can deeply recommend this software. It can really wake you and your computer up and play iTunes songs, etc. without you even having to worry about anything. Just shut your computer down, completely (well, you have to keep the electricity cord in, though ;) and it'll wake you up in a trustworthy manner.

I tried iBeeZz 2.4.1 to start up a remote computer and launch a backup script etc. The software certainly seems unfinished to me. The basic idea is great but it could be so much better if it worked properly. When you are working on a particular timer, the dialogue box stays in front of the main dialogue box = PITA. I've also found the computer startup to be extremly unreliable and have reverted to the Energy Saver for that, but the timing and launching of programs and scripts seems to work OK.

Yes, iBeeZz is a great little program. I'm using an internet radio time-shifter called iRecordMusic & iBeeZz does what OS X.2.8 fails to do, wake up my mac in time for scheduled events. Only problem is, I paid for IBeeZz via PayPal 3 days ago (Jan 13) & have yet to get my registration code even after emailing the author. Does anyone know if Beeloo is still on the case? I really hate that nag screen !!

After reviewing the reviews of this and my general disdain for charging for uninformed users for flaky software, here are some suggested alternatives that will not cost you anything and will work: - Use Energy Saver to Startup and ShutDown your machine. It is in your System Preferences - Use a freeware Cron tool such as Cronnix or piTime to schedule your favorite app or script to run. FYI: Cron is a UNIX tool already built into your OSX for this purpose but lacks a friendly interface, unless your a UNIX Geek. These free tools provide the interface. The bottom line - Why pay someone else for a tool that only partially works when you already have tools that do, but just don't know how to use them yet.
