Is it possible to force all TrueCrypt mounted volumes to eject when my Mac goes to sleep or to have TrueCrypt quit (causing them to unmount)? I'm looking for a little extra "easy" security when I move my Mac around.

Per the TrueCrypt docs, the dismount option could be added to your shutdown script.

truecrypt /d


truecrypt -d

Can someone link this to or provide details how to execute a shutdown script at sleep time to complete this answer? – bmike Nov 4 '12 at 20:26
Thanks for the tip! I found a few apps that'll help me do this since there is no sleep/wake script. – Matt Perkins Nov 9 '12 at 14:42
@Matt, Care to share what apps you found? – Nate Feb 28 '13 at 15:18
@Nate sorry, but i never really solved for it. – Matt Perkins Mar 1 '13 at 2:26
