I have now disabled this as it doesn't seem to work consistently. In addition, I'm running into a Mavericks "sleep wake failure" crashes and I'm trying to see if I my sleepwatcher script was the culprit.

However, I also get the error "The disk was not ejected properly. If possible, always eject a disk before unplugging it or turning it off." while the machine is active, with the lid open, while I'm using it also. It seems that Mavericks has a bug with sporadic errors regarding USB-attached disks.

This works for me, but only sometimes. Not sure why.

I could use some review on this answer to ensure that I am activating the .plist thing correctly.

comment How long does Apple provide support for Mac OS X?
And Microsoft has a clear EOL policy. I know when Windows XP is being retired, and I understand their rationale-- Windows XP is quite old. I'm still not clear on Apple's policy, and Snow Leopard isn't yet 4 years old yet.
