For all the other posters that have commented on the price, may I suggest you visit the website, you will find the price is £39.95 for the personal version rather than jumping to conclusions that the price is a OTT, which if you take it form here then it is.

I've been using the personal version for the past 2 years and it's been perfect, it does what is required with no issues at all.

I know you can set your Mac to startup at a specific time everyday, but with this app you can have totally different times, and it will also shut it down for you as well.

For me this is perfect for my PPC Mac Mini File/Apple TV Server, I can set it to only come on in the evening and shutdown at 12 every night then at the weekends do completely different times.

Apart from saving energy, it also giving my poor old Mac Mini a breather and shutting down/cooling down for a 8 hours a day when we are at work.

Am I nuts, or is the price of $430 for this thing delusional/insane/idiotic/retarded/$5 too high?

and considering that my Mac will turn on and off on it's own this is a huge joke.

It does seem over-priced. It can run on a whole network, so I suppose if you have 400 Macs in your company, all saving a bit of power here and there then the expense might be justified, but I'm not convinced of the need for it anyway. It runs scripts etc., so is more than just power management, but asking $400+ for any piece of SW these days takes some balls when there is so much quality stuff out there for under $20.00 or so.

This must save a lot of energy to be worth $430 ;)
