I want to love this product because my Mac has insomnia, but PleaseSleep doesn't always work. I come back to my computer often to find that it's still awake. I was excited to see the addition of the Do Not Force Sleep screen, and that seems to work just fine. But PleaseSleep needs to force sleep any time it's supposed to. It seems to be only marginally better than Energy Saver.

This is a cool app, but I've found a bug I can't squash. I added Excel to the list of apps to disable, but then I deleted it because I want Excel to restore the windows. Unfortunately, none of my open windows will restore.

I uninstalled the pref pane, deleted the preference files for RestoreMeNot, turned off and on the system option to Restore windows, but Excel still won't restore open windows.

There's got to be a file or setting somewhere that I'm missing. Before I add any more apps to the list not to restore, I want to be sure that deleting them will restore their behavior back to normal.

Any ideas?

Anyone?! No one?! Someone?! The developer!?

After over a year of frustration of not being able to get Excel restored to opening previous windows, after installing this app, I finally found a solution. If anyone else installs this and has the same problem, go into your user Library, do a search for Excel and remove com.microsoft.Excel.savedState and com.microsoft.Excel.prefs.plist (if you have it). I also removed some com.microsoft.Excel error reporting plist files, but I don't think they had anything to do with the problem.

I wish the developer had responded, but I'm happy to say I finally solved this annoyance. I'm reluctant to use this app in the future.

Lately I've been having more trouble with Snowtape prematurely cutting tracks, even with overlapping enabled. Is there a way to extend the overlap time? I've tried to leave feedback on the developer's website, but it doesn't seem to take. Hopefully other users have experienced the same thing and have a solution. Thanks!

1.4.6 didn't work for my international cities but 1.4.7 doesn't work for me for any cities. All US cities and all International cities are Question Marks. Thankfully I could revert to the old version and at least have the US cities working again.

I have an Intel Mac. Not sure if that has anything to do with the problem.
