comment scheduled account lock Mac OS X
Yes, that worked, thanks! Just named the file suspend instead of logout. Now I just need to get user confirmation with a popup, if that's possible--I'll open another question: apple.stackexchange.com/q/49946/8699

Tried that command in crontab, no luck there either. Doesn't that require the entry of a password?

No luck there. I think the user running the cronjobs (root) can't call suspend on another user, at least not with this command.

Lion. The command itself worked by itself for me too, but I tried setting a crontab with a time a few minutes in the future and nothing happened when the specified time came.

Thanks for the tip, it doesn't work for me, but that's another question. (Shouldn't it be 17 instead of 7 for 5 PM?)

comment Store iTunes Password in Keychain
That's annoying that Apple allows virtually every other password to be saved in the Keychain but its own, and that there are no add-ons that enable saving iTunes passwords.
