Well, after a few days they did write me with a suggestion for fixing the problem. Alas, it didn't work. I've written their tech support back more than once telling them it didn't work, and after a week or more, I've heard nothing. It's a shame. I really like this product and was very happy to pay for it, but it just doesn't work on my iMac now, and I'm getting no help at all from the developer. Time to move on, I guess.

I use iTunes Match and can't seem to find how to make it the "go to" folder for music played in this app.

"Refined user interface with Retina display support. New application icon." Yep,- now i have a ugly black clock in my Menuebar (10.9.5), and it starts the timer slowly. But its is a good tool,- never let me hang.

Could you send a screenshot of the ugly black icon in your menubar? Also, regarding the timer - can you give us more detail about this problem?

Buggy. CPU usage of over 20% when sitting idle is not acceptable. Also many crashes on OS X 10.9.5. While the program looks nice, it's basically not a good idea to use it, in it's current state if you are trying to be productive.

I'd highly recommend updating to version 6.0. It's a free major update. You CPU usage will go to 0% while idle.

To bad it cannot shutdown. It only supports sleep. Cool would be a feature to shutdown after playing an album or a playlist in iTunes.

The only reason why we don't offer shutdown is because we have no way to log you back in. We could start your Mac, but not get beyond the login screen. I'd be interested to hear your feedback on this.

This is currently very broken on a retina macbook on 10.8.2. I've emailed embraceware twice, and no responses. Plus we cannot download the latest version outside of the app store. Not a good experience at the moment...

Just to update, I got a belated reply from Embraceware letting me know the retina problems will be fixed in Awaken 6 and it will be a free update for Awaken 5 users, and it will be available outside the app store. Looking forward to the update, will post a proper review at that time

I pretty much abandoned this quite a while ago because it was never robust enough. It's been about a year since you reckon the developer said he would have your issues fixed with the intro of version 6 and that still hasn't happened. Are you still having your Retina problems?

The developer had released a minor point update of V5 a while ago to fix the retina issues. Still looking forward to V6, but in this case for new features, not bug fixes!

This app was once unstable, sometimes, and not so pleasant to use. I think it is now almost perfect.

That's not my experience - I find it doesn't work well with spaces enabled in Lion. The alarm goes off OK, but if Awaken is in another space and it is in full screen mode you can't click on anything to make the alarm go off (I just quit the application). I think the developer knows about the issue, but when I ask him about it via email he doesn't respond.

I'm surprised the dev doesn't answer to those bad reviews: I had the same problem on PPC when I switched from Tiger (where Awaken was perfect!) to Leopard, and had to find alternatives...

Hi Aargl, The latest version of Awaken (5) requires an Intel Mac. If you'd like to run Awaken on PPC - email support@embraceware.com to request a free license for Awaken 4.
