LaunchOnTimeService is a service for opening files (including apps), folders or executing AppleScripts (optionally emailing results) at specified times. It is an auxiliary service for the app LaunchOnTime. Its functionality is exactky the same as "LaunchOnTime," but operates in the background, i.e. it's windows can be hidden, it has no menubar and no Dock icon.

After the service is installed, make sure that it's menu item "Open LaunchOnTime Window" is selected in the General section of Services Preferences. Then select this menu item from any Services menu to open the items list window.

Drag and drop files or use the "Browse" button to add files to the item list window. Then select one or more items and use the "Date-Time" selector to schedule their launch date. If the file is an AppleScript it will be executed, otherwise the file will be opened in the default application for the type of file. Click the "Start" button to run the schedule.

Messages are sent to the console log.

Various options are available using the Preferences window, such as setting the option to repeat the schedule periodically. LaunchOnTimeService will wake up a sleeping computer prior to a launch time if you run it as "root user." To do so use Chalaut.

LaunchOnTimeService is part of the Limit Point Software "Utilities Bundle" which includes all software at Utilities
