Scenario is a little app which enables you to set specific moments to launch AppleScripts. You can have these scripts launch at Login or Logout, When your machine is about to sleep or waking from sleep, after a set period of inactivity or when you press a key combination. It runs as an item in your menu bar (which you can opt to hide). Very useful for kiosks, or all sorts of situations.

** IMPORTANT ** Scenario requires some knowledge of AppleScript. You cannot simply use unmodified scripts with some of these triggers. For example, running a script before sleep requires the script to return a special value or your machine may fail to sleep altogether. It is really important that you follow the programming guide found on our web site and from the Help menu.

worked for me

I only used the on wake feature. It worked fine.

One must provide an apple script to invoke commands. My knowledge is all bash scripting… okay no biggie, I figured out how to execute a bash script using apple script. Just a bit of pain. I would like to see the option to execute either an apple script or a bash script. Or provide a pre-baked example apple script and some documentation because I suspect this is common scenario. Here is my apple script:

tell application "Terminal"
do shell script “/Users/me/path/to/my/script/ > /tmp/ 2>&1"
on error errmsg
display dialog errmsg buttons {"oops"}
end try
end tell

… the output redirect is really important or else the apple script doesn’t exit (pain!).
