HOWTO | Schedule events with iBeeZz
1 Schedule an app
Click Setup, then the + (bottom-left). In the panel that opens, set Type to the action to perform (Open File can open an app). Set when it should happen. If you’re opening an app like EyeTV to record something, check the options that wake or start your Mac from cold. Click OK to confirm the schedule.
2 Schedule an iTunes playlist
Setting Type to iTunes reveals more controls. Click Playlist, then check the box for ‘Play specific playlist’ and pick one below. You can also control the volume of iTunes or the system, ensuring a sensible volume early or late in the day. Under Options, decide on repeated and shuffled playback.
3 Quit applications
At some point, we’ve all lost track of the time when using a computer, throwing off our schedule. Setting an iBeeZz event’s type to ‘Quit Application’ enables you to shove distractions like Twitter out of the way – albeit in an abrupt fashion – to focus on what matters during working hours.
4 Schedule shutdown times
OS X can schedule shutdown for the same time each day, yet iBeeZz allows different ones as separate events. Set a time, set Type to Shutdown, and specify days on which it will occur. You can enforce shutdown, so an app can’t prevent it (but losing unsaved data), and get advance warning of it.
