PowerController is an iTunes alarm clock. It is easily configured via System Preferences and offers the following features:

    • Sets the initial system volume and iTunes volume at your desired level
    • Gradually increases volume for soothing wake experience
  • Wakes your computer from sleep
  • Shuts off your alarm if you don't dismiss it after a designated time period (so that your neighbors don't call the police when you go away for vacation!)

  • PowerController runs in the background -- there is no application hogging Dock space
  • Alarms never need to be rescheduled, even across reboots!
  • Customizable snooze time
  • Unlike other apps, you don't need to enter an administrative password every time you want to set an alarm
  • Optional menu bar item allows easy access to info about scheduled events

  • Main Window: The main PowerController window allows you to view existing events, create new events, edit events or delete events. By clicking the checkbox next to an event in the 'On' column, you may temporarily disable (or re-enable) an event without deleting the item.

Main Window

  • Editor Window (Basic Info tab): The Basic Info tab of the Event Editor window allows you to select the type of PowerController event and the time and days on which the event will occur.

Editor Window

  • Editor Window (Options tab): The Options tab for an iTunes alarm allows you to fully customize your iTunes alarm. You can separately indicate the initial system volume and initial iTunes volume. You may choose to have the iTunes volume increased gradually for a more soothing waking experience, and you can set the maximum iTunes volume that will be reached. A maximum alarm duration can also be set, and if you do not dismiss the iTunes alarm within the indicated timeframe PowerController will automatically stop playing music in iTunes.

Editor Window

  • Menubar Item: A PowerController status item may optionally be kept in your system menubar. The menubar item gives you quick access to information about the next scheduled event and lets you verify which events are enabled or disabled without opening System Preferences. The menubar item also contains a shortcut to the PowerController pane in System Preferences, thereby allowing you to make changes quickly and easily.
