Alarm clock application.

Overview

iWake is an alarm clock. It can play a music file of your choice, run an AppleScript script, or have iTunes play something (a track of a playlist or a radio stream) for you.

Features:

  • iWake has a countdown timer and an alarm clock.
  • iWake can play music (iTunes or music file) while waiting during countdown or until the alarm sounds.
  • iWake can program your computer to wake or start at a given time.

When the countdown timer reaches 0 or when the alarm clock sounds, iWake can do one of the following:

  • Do nothing, and stop playing music if it was.
  • Put the computer to sleep or shut it down.
  • Play a short built-in sound file.
  • Play a music file from a list of files. iWake can read MP3, AAC, Wave, AIF, snd files and probably others.
  • Run an AppleScript script.
  • Tell iTunes to play something (That is, anything that iTunes can read).

What's new in iWake

Version 1.0:
  • New, smaller interface.
  • Added a countdown timer.
  • Added the possibility to play music while waiting.
  • "Snooze" now add time to the current time only.
  • Removed the following behavior options: "refuse to quit while ringing" and "disable interface while ringing", which are implicitly true now.
  • Removed the Window Opacity and Interface Theme setting.
  • iWake's automatic wake or start is compatible with Mac OS 10.2 and later.

I can't get it to sound an alarm. I tried an iTunes playlist & I tried the built-in sound. Nothing. Just sits there. Also, when the big button says ON does that mean it's ON or does that mean turn it on by pressing ON? Maybe that's why it doesn't go off. Which is confusing because it said ON when I launched it. I'd think it would be off when I launch it, before I tell it when to sound an alarm. So if I leave the button reading ON something does happen at the alarm time. I get an error dialog: AppleScript Error NSReceiverEvaluationScriptError: 4 (1) Too bad, cause iWake looks nicer than the alarm I do use--Big Clock X.

I couldn't figure out how to set it. I'm not going to spend lots of time learning how to set an alarm clock

It's great software! Thanks a lot. :) The fact that it can change the volume when the alarm goes off is awesome.. What I was using before couldn't, so I'd get woken up every time my mom decided to Skype me in the middle of the night (different time zones). :X I mostly use it to tell iTunes to play every morning. I suppose it would be nice if you could choose a genre etc straight from iWake; right now I just create a smart playlist. The go-sleep/wake-up feature works here, but I mostly have my computer doing stuff during the night. Smart and useful though. I don't use the count down feature, so I'd rather not have it right there. A bit confusing, but not too bad. A nice feature would be if it was easier to turn the alarm off. I'm really confused in the mornings so I end up looking for the cursor and accidently starting the dashboard (dang hotspots). It's kind of hard to hit the STOP button. I just figured out that I can hit SPACE. Can you make it react to ANY key? Another alarm I tried can run full screen.. Makes everything a lot less confusing in the mornings. You might want to make the text boxes update as soon as you enter something. Not after an ENTER or when they lose focus. Not a big deal, but I've missed waking up once because of it.

I have a G4 1.33ghz iBook with 10.4.2, I followed the instructions (as below) and the laptop didn't wake. Thank god my mobile phone alarm did, or I'd have been even later for work! I need a reliable piece of software to wake my computer from sleep. So far, for some sad reason, neither Alarm Clock Pro or iWake can do this for me!!!

The Automatic Wake or Start system worked every time, with every computers I have access to. Here's how to use it: 1. open the configuration panel. 2. In the popup menu, select "automatic start or wake" 3. Enter an administrator password, press the Enter key. 4. If it's accepted, the other controls activate. 5. In the time control fields, enter when you want the mac to start or wake. 6. click the "Sleep" button to register the automatic wake time, and put the mac to sleep. As explained in the Automatic Start or Wake Configuration Tab, iWake doesn't set the automatic wake if it doesn't put the mac to sleep itself. That means that if you did not told iWake to put the mac to sleep, it's normal that the mac didn't wake. Also, laptops never wake when the lid is closed.

Another Alarm which has some feature other dont and its doesnt have some features other have... it doesnt even have waking the mac up... so... I just stick to these very basic and simple apps that get the job done, they do my sleeping/waking: - Pause 1.6 to get to sleep http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/7045 - System Preferences (10.4) - Energy Saver - Schedule (to wake the computer up) - MP3 Alarm Clock 2.2 to ring me awake, it works, its simple, its the best! http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/7045

iWake is currently unable to wake a computer from sleep, I'm afraid... I'm searching a way to do it. Until I can add this feature, here are some things you could do to make your computer as discreet as possible (no noise, no light): - Set the computer to never sleep (System Preferences > Energy Saver > Put the computer to sleep when it is inactive for : > set to never). - Turn the screen off (use a screensaver, turn its luminosity off, or use the Energy Saver Preference Pane to turn the screen off after one minute) - Set the sound volume to 0, in case some program would make noise. iWake override this setting. - Stop the hard drive(s) from spinning (System Preferences > Energy Saver > Put the hard drive(s) to sleep when possible). - Quit every software which require a lot of CPU power (so that the processor is less heated, and the fans turn slower or stop, and become silent), or which access frequently the hard drive(s) (so that it(they) stop spinning and making noise). - Turn off any noisy peripheral equipments. Of course, these are just ideas, do only what is useful to you. Your computer shouldn't bother you for the night, and wake you up in the morning.

iWake failed to go off this morning. I downloaded this app night before last, and tested it then- it worked just fine. Yesterday morning, it went off, but too quietly--my fault, I thought, for setting the handy volume controls too low. I reset and tested them, and it worked just fine. But this morning the app failed to wake my computer up at all. After I woke up, I reset the alarm to test it. It worked fine when my computer was awake, but didn't wake the computer up from sleep. I don't know why this happened, do you have any advice? I like the app's interface, it's very simple and attractive, so I'd be happy to keep using it if I can make it reliable.

So less than a day later, and the interface is no longer confusing--and the alarm works! Thanx.
