iWannaSleep is a timer application. You can set a countdown, after which iTunes is stopped or your computer is shut down or put to sleep. You can even specify a custom AppleScript to be executed when the countdown has reached zero.

Especially useful for having iTunes play some soft music before going to bed. If you don't want to switch off your computer manually (or you fell asleep already), it's good to know that "iWannaSleep" will care about that.

Great app, I often use it. It would be good to have a more silent sound to be played instead of this noise (maybe as an option).

Perfect; It does its job flawlessly! I use it all the time - very simple interface. I open the program and forget about it; it stops iTunes after a certain amount of time then automatically quits itself.

Roro01 had trouble on 22 Jan 2008
1. Alert dialog when quitting manually or automatically.

2. Displays "Error" when launching the application saying that the selected AppleScript file, which was used in the previous session, being suddenly invalid and then crashhhh. Happens with both - text and compiled scripts which have the correct extensions. iMac Intel 10.4.11

It seems this happens if the script file is moved to another location after quitting the application. Instead of showing this error, the application should ask for the file.

Crashes about a second after launch. Using OS X 10.4.8 on an iMac G5 (PPC). Any thoughts?
