This app is a great idea but, in action, it's a little shaky. For example, it doesn't seem to be able to open or close Chrome at all. So, when I switch between 'Coffee' and 'Beer,' only some of the applications that are supposed to close actually do.

What applications are you having trouble opening and closing other than Chrome, and can you check to make sure that they are checked in the application preference. If they are not checked, they are ignored by that action.

The website for this app is sparse on details. Can this launch apps after you >>wake< < your computer from sleep or only after a restart, shutdown, etc.?

You select when it performs the open or close functions. You can have it launch the apps anytime.
