Scheduled backup stopped working
Hi Dave,

As always, great product and well worth the price. I evangelize constantly on your behalf!

My scheduled backup has stopped working. My Mini is set to go to sleep, so I have a "wake-up" event scheduled for Tuesday at 4:00AM. And I have SuperDuper scheduled to run on Tuesday at 4:02AM. All of which worked just fine until about the time I upgraded to 10.4.4.

I've deleted the scheduled events on the Mac and in SuperDuper and redone them, but still nothing happening.

Next steps?

Thanks in advance for your help.

A few things. First, do a test run with the time of "five minutes from now", and a wake-up at "four minutes from now". If that works, set the wake-up to 4:01...

Note: you have to be logged in, with the screen unlocked, and the account in front for scheduling to work.

Hope that helps!

All fixed--thanks for the suggestions. I had checked the option on the Mac to require a password upon awakening from sleep--unchecking this solved the problem. I'm pretty sure that I had that option checked before I moved to 10.4.4, and that SuperDuper ran anyway, but I can live without that extra level of security.

Thanks again for your prompt reply.

A pleasure, Jamie. Glad you're set.
