Problem: Programs like Things and Together do not like to be open in two locations so while Dropbox is great for some things it is less than ideal for these. Data loss could occur. So using those on desktop/laptop is an issue and remembering to quit them has proved to not work consistently.
Desired solution: A paid app (one must exist surely? There has to be more than me that wants this) that to which I can add specific programs and which auto-quits them after x minutes of system - not that program - inactivity. or An applescript solution with some explanation on use. I am at a loss with applescript and automator. I tried to find some way to tie this to the screensaver starting but nothing I tried worked.
Super bonus points: For the app to quit those selected programs on Sleep.
I know I can access the desktop from the laptop on but I'd prefer a more automated solution if it exists. I have looked but if it's out there I cannot find it.
Any ideas would be very welcome. Thanks!
