First, thanks for creating SuperDuper. It's a fantastic program and has saved me from myself several times.

Of course, like any annoying user I do have a request: It would be nice if SuperDuper had an option to automatically wake the Mac for a scheduled copy, or mentioned in the schedule window that it does not do this. I had a long-standing scheduled copy and recently set it to run a little earlier, not remembering that SD does not wake up the Mac automatically. Since my online backup, alarm, and scheduled task programs automatically wake up the Mac I've gotten in the habit of expecting that when I schedule something it will run even if the system is asleep. It was surprising to learn that SD didn't and I had to re-read the user guide to learn how to line things up again. Just wanted to pass that on!

Thanks, Matt. It's not something we do automatically, no, but it's a known issue (obviously, I guess, since I documented it) even if unexpected...
