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.

What's New in Version 1.61

Customer Reviews

Great app, too pricy!

$5 is a bit too much for something so simple, if you ask me. But, it does what it says: I have an SSD and HDD in my Macbook and I use to put my HDD to sleep when the Macbook wakes up, to save battery life. So this is a very useful app, but it would be of better value if it was $3 instead of $5.

Awesome solution

Best solution for eject second HDD on wake for iMac.

With Automator create console application like
diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk1
diskutil eject /dev/disk1

For Scenario create script on wake:
tell application "Eject"
end tell

Thank you so much!
