WakieWakie - Faceless background application that opens/launches the contents of a folder when your Mac is woken up
Version: 1.0.1WakieWakie is a faceless background application that opens/launches the contents of a folder when your Mac is woken up.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Think of it as a parallel to the Startup Items mechanism.
Now Location Manager aware !
Drop it into your Extensions folder. Create a folder named Wakeup Items inside your System folder. Put into that folder any aliases, documents, applications, scripts, whatever that you want to run/open when your machine wakes up. The only restriction is that folders with a bullet (Option-8) as the first character of their name won't be opened. If you don't like INITs, don't worry; it's a daemon. Change the creator to 'APPL' with your favorite resource editor and you can launch it at will instead of having it load at startup. If you have Apple's Location Manager installed on your system, things change slightly. If you have a location selected (not "None (Off)") and the Wakeup Items folder contains a subfolder whose name is the same as the current location with a bullet (Option-8) on the front, WakieWakie will open the items in that subfolder rather than the Wakeup Items folder proper. To illustrate, consider this arrangement:
- System Folder
- -Wakeup Items
- --Some App
- ---Some Other App
If the current location is named "Testing" the application "Some Other App" will be launched when the machine wakes up. If the current location is anything else - including None - the application "Some App" will be launched.
