I have the following AppleScript, which is triggered by iCal to act as my alarm clock:
set musicPath to the path to me as text set musicPath to text items 1 thru -12 of musicPath as text set musicPath to musicPath & "drumsolo.aif" set volume output volume 90 tell application "QuickTime Player" run open musicPath tell document 1 -- play -- end tell -- end tell
I've also used 'play front document' and 'play document 1' for the block marked with dashes. The problem is, System Preferences wakes up the computer on time (from sleep, 5 minutes before the script is triggered). The script works, opening the file and turning up the computer's volume.
But, when actually running the script for real, and ONLY then, the darn sound file won't play. It just sits there. When I tested it w/ Applescript editor, it opens and plays fine. When I tested it w/ iCal (resetting the event to a new time), it opens and plays fine. When I reset the computer's sleep time and the day's event, it opens and plays fine.
It's only when I actually put my computer to sleep, rest for 8 hours, and the script wakes the computer that it doesn't play. Help!!
