I just bought a new rMBP fully loaded with Mavericks. I decided to review and load all of my apps from scratch as the old MBP had an update lineage dating back to OS X 10.1! I occasionally have a reason to have my Mac wake from sleep that doesn't involve Audio Hijack Pro. The app, though definitely old skool in appearance, still works. My only older app is the Preference Pane, Diablotin. I see one competitor shown for it priced at $50 and one priced at $20 as best I can gauge. How can you go wrong at $10?

Solid product that works as advertised (and then some). I rely on PowerController for its alarm capabilities each and every week. It's an elegant, easy-to-use program that is highly customizable and low on system resources. Highly recommended.

I just installed PowerController 2; I have a comment and a question. My question is, is it possible for Powercontroller to Startup my iMac, then run the iTunes alarm? It seems that PowerController does Boot my Mac at the appropriate time, but then nothing. iTunes never starts. My comment is, gradual volume increase is too fast. I think it should take 4-5 minutes before full volume is attained. Right now it seems to only take 30-40 seconds to go full volume. Thank you

Great Software... The only thing is that sometimes, even when I have an event unchecked it still wakes my computer at that exact time.

Seems to work properly thus far, except that even after unchecking events some of them still occur (the Awake event was unchecked, yet my computer still did it - according to the console.log, it may have been attempting to fulfill the unchecked iTunes event, too).

Okay, supposedly this version fixed a bug that prevents your computer from idle sleep. That it did until OS 10.2.5 came along, now my computer won't idle sleep. Other than that, this is probably the cheapest, most bitchen alarm clock you'll ever have.
