I'm creating a kiosk. Would like it to sleep at night and wake in the morning. I know about auto sleep in System Preferences > Energy Saver.

Trouble is, the Mac puts up a dialog box before sleeping saying that the system will sleep in 2 minutes and giving the user a chance to Cancel or Sleep. We don't want that to appear. Any way to disable this warning box?

You have to write an AppleScript and then have a program like CronniX trigger it.

Thanks to Dave at the Mac Geek Gab!

What's the script? Could you tell us what you did to accomplish such a task? – Simon Sheehan Nov 12 '11 at 0:51
