I have a workflow set up to download backups of my websites. The workflow itself works fine, but i am having trouble scheduling it with iCal. When the iCal event triggers, the workflow opens in automator, but does not run.

I dont understand why it wont run.

You save the Workflow as an Application, then run THAT with iCal. Opening a workflow does not make it run; that's only for editing the workflow.
