"Developer doesn't respond: Won't wake my computer"

March 07, 2007  |  By pandion

 |  Version: PowerController 2.1.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The program won't wake my computer consistently. I reset my permissions using OnyX, restarted, opened only iTunes and it still won't wake my computer. As soon as I hit the spacebar--no matter how long past the alarm time--Powercontroller will open the script and play the playlist.

When I change just the alarm time in the script and then put my computer to sleep Powercontroller works fine, waking my computer, opening the script and starting the playlist.

I'm stumped. I've asked the developer to help solve this but I've gotten NO response via email or Version Tracker.

"Finally a alarm that wakes me up..."

October 04, 2004  |  By hbsteve

 |  Version: PowerController 1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Well had to try this... have tried others before, but this one works...

Could use a little dressup or a nice skin to tidy things up in the design of it, but its straight foward pretty much.

Its worked flawlessly every time.. had to register it... wish more people would produce simple inexpensive software... Gets my $ everytime...

"Love this tool"

August 01, 2004  |  By Rod1976

 |  Version: PowerController 1.0.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
My physical alarm clock died a slow horrible death, so VT to the rescue. PowerController is a great app works as expected and does what it needs to do. The only thing that it really needs is its own icon that default preference pane icon starts to get redundant in my prefpane after a few apps that are great but don't have a distinguishable icon. I would recommed this too anyone who needs to be up and wants to make sure it will happen!....

"The best just got better"

Summary

I've been waiting for this update for since 10.3 came out and thought this app was dead. Easily worth the small shareware fee! This is the way to start your day off right.

"Hallelujah!"

July 10, 2004  |  By SonySnake

 |  Version: PowerController 1.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've gone though a dozen alarm clock apps after Powermanager stopped working with Panther and not one was even close to the functionality (reliably wake from sleep, ability to start volume low and work up, not hogging dock space, etc etc). I was almost ready to unretire that godforsaken clock radio of mine *shudder* Tested a few alarms and PowerController works like a charm, just like the good old days! Thanks so much Keaka!

"The Best"

September 11, 2003  |  By artistgreg

 |  Version: PowerManager 1.0b4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
PowerManager is the best iTunes alarm clock I've found. Unlike others, it reliably wakes the computer because it is a system preference, not just an application. It has the added bonus of gradually increasing the volume when it sounds. I highly recommend it.

"wake me up when it's ready"

June 06, 2003  |  By Pentium Bunny

 |  Version: PowerManager 1.0b4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
For an alarm clock-type app i'm really hoping for something a little more reliable. Power Manager looked very promising but seemed to work off and on :) I reckon it failed to play anything in iTunes for at least 80% of the time - although it did wake the 'puter up admittedly pretty reliably. I'm trying to get it automatically play a certain radio stream initially on wake up and failing that would fall back to a regular playlist. I created a new playlist with one entry for the radio station but still no deal.

i really want to pay for this but i'm absolutely fcked if i'm going to fork over my cash for the privilege of being a beta tester. giving up on power manager for now...
