“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

comment OS X Mavericks - Have to pull mouse down on full-screen app to see dock
That doesn't quite describe the behavior I'm seeing. In fact, I'm really not sure what it is, as it seems to be a bit different each time. There must be some documentation of this somewhere, and one would hope there's a way to configure it too. In the meantime, this really doesn't work for me.

comment How do I show the Dock in full-screen mode?
Actually, this doesn't reliably work for me after all.

@GrahamMiln: Thanks. Power Manager's documentation is excellent. In fact it's the only place I've found a satisfactory accounting of power management functionality on OS X.

@GrahamMiln: Yes. In this case I wanted the logging, so I took the approach above.

comment What is the difference among the various event schedulers for OS X / Darwin?
So cron wakes every second even of there are no scheduled cron tasks — i.e., the waking would go on even if there were none?

And is it really waking the CPU every minute?

This all makes sense, but why would a product (Super Duper!, for example) continue to use cron, especially if it is waking the processor every minute?!

Using caffeinate is you best bet.

Regarding pmset, how does an app like Power Manager work? It clearly creates pmset entries (and does not use cron or launchd) and also does more than simply wake the machine (it runs arbitrary code).

I don't see -p user.info going to syslog. Where do messages with that priority go?

The question is: what does "can't be sent" mean in this context.

I'm using Power Manager to run it. But I've removed all triggers, and am running it manually as a Power Manager task to test, 9 out of 10 times it runs, but sometimes it has no effect. Does the script have a bug, or is the issue with Power Manager?

@BradAllred: Ah, yes. I mean non-Apple backup software, for example.
