Pause2.1.1

06 December 2005

Shuts computer down after tasks.

Overview

Pause is a small Applescript Studio app to help make your life easier. Have you ever wanted to go to bed and have the computer turn the music off later? Ever wanted to watch a DVD in bed and know that if you fall asleep the computer will still turn off after the film? Well, Pause will do all that for you.

Pause provides a simple and clear interface with a good variety of options. This program is still in development, so if there are any features you would like added, please contact me!

IMPORTANT! There is a bug in Apple's bindings system (which Pause now uses) that means none of the scripts previously bindled with this app will work. Also, do not attempt to run Pause scripts from the iTunes script menu as the two will just sit there waiting for each other to finish!

Where it says "custom events," I clicked the question mark right beside it so that I can learn how to make my own script. When I clicked on that question mark button, it says to go to the disk image to check out the documentaion on how to create it. Well, I went there and opened up the text file; I read the whole thing, but doesn't say how to create your own scripts.

Seriously a cool app. Works everytime, I go to bed, play music, when I wake up the computer is shut down. Just what it's meant to do. The coolest thing is how it fades sound out over a period of time you can set so it eases out rather than ending ubrubtly and interrupting sleep. I also use it with Disk Utility. I'll repair my permissions set Pause and walk away knowing my computer will shut down after it's through repairing. Great App. AND IT'S FREE.

This simply crashes on me when I try to run it. It opens up, shows a dialog and then crashes. 2.0.1 under 10.4 (1.8dual G5 PowerMac). :-(

Does exactly what it says on the tin. I notice there's no opportunity to cancel out of the dialog, which is a bit awkward if you just - for exampe - ran it up to learn or remind yourself what the options available were.

Nice update, BUT i dont like the fact that it launches iTunes every time it launches. It can be used for a load of other reasons, not only iTunes, (there is a DVD option included) so why does it launch iTunes???

I sleep my iMac G5 more than once everyday and have never had any problems. Set this to sleep it after 2 hours today which worked until I tried to wake it - wouldn't wake, black screen, fans running slowly, no power light. Took the power cord out, replaced it, tried to start - nothing, fans going, black screen, power light on. Tried this numerous times with the same results, gave up and left the machine for 10 min, then tried again and it was fine (?). Possibly a coincidence but I won't be using this again for a while

This program is simple, yet brilliant. It has THE easiest interface ever, it's just a choice template, nothing difficult, it gives the user good control over their laptop, without even being there (I can set the Powerbook to shut down in 5 minutes if needs be). Get Pause. Good software, good work. Regards, Mo.
