comment Can iPhone wake me up if I completely turn it off?
You can set a specific time every day for the mac to be turned on, which is kind of like what we're looking for on the iPhone. See this image: techraptor.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/…

comment Can iPhone wake me up if I completely turn it off?
This is definitely a feature I miss from my old Nokia "dumb" phones. I don't understand why Mac's have been able to do this for years, but the iPhone can't.

comment Setting for iOS device type (Jailbreak)
Sorry, logged in too late to give you some of the bounty. (If a moderator reads this, can you give an extension? The last time I had a bounty, there was a grace period for rewarding.) Personally I think this can be done with a hook of the function that queries the device type. I don't think it matters what the app is, especially since the alternative is buying a device that it'll run on.

comment how to find out the start time of last sleep
I don't get any results for powerd in any of the system logs, could I be missing some setting for logging powerd activities?

comment double password entry to access account
Yeah I'm using the script above (without your last changes, what are they exactly?) with "~" as my USER_PATH. The timed suspend is 4 hours and I'm running this script at 9:30 in the morning. I always put my computer to sleep manually, perhaps that's why the script doesn't work. Although it could be something else entirely....

I think I'm getting a suspend after logging in, but the login screen never comes and I have to restart (2x so far).

Unfortunately not, but I think it's the closest solution possible at this time, thanks!

ok, I see the important part for me now, checking the com.apple.screensaver.plist file. Although isn't that better described as the ELAPSED_TIME? For me CHOSEN_TIME is the time described in the LaunchAgents plist.

No problem, thanks again for the updates, I will try this out. Do you think it will work if I put my computer to sleep manually, without any screen saver coming on (that's the way my computer usually sleeps)?

Thanks for the quick answer, just did a quick test of the ps and grep commands, nothing came up. Perhaps the 4 hour timer that locks my account is not controlled by ScreenSaverEngine.app?

What was wrong with the question? It's always nice to get a comment when getting a downvote, otherwise how can you learn from your mistakes?
