AppleScripts for Hypnos 5.2.1 or later
To shut down or restart your Macintosh with Hypnos, please download the shutdown and restart AppleScripts here and put them into the following directory: “~/Library/Application Scripts/com.GuguSoft.Berceuse”. This directory is created automatically when you launch Hypnos 5.2.1 or later for the first time. Included is an Alias that points to this folder. Drop the two AppleScripts on it and you are done.
Or you can type on your own the following commands in the AppleScript-Editor (Resides in the Utilities folder):
To Shut Down:
tell application "Finder" to shut down
tell application "Finder" to restart
These are the same commands as in the downloadable AppleScripts (Additionally, the downloadable AppleScripts include a command to pause iTunes). Save these two scripts and put them in the above mentioned folder.
Hash Mismatch Error when Updating
If you are updating from an older version with a different name than “Hypnos”, a hash mismatch error may occur. To download the newest version successfully, please delete beforehand all old versions.
Listen to the current album only (Does not work anymore in Hypnos 5.2, because of App Sandboxing)
In iTunes you can display your tracks as an album list, grid or cover flow. If you have iTunes in one of this view modes and you check the checkbox “Wait for playlist to finish” in the Hypnos interface, Hypnos will be asking, if you want to listen only to the current album before it takes the chosen action.
All what you need to get it work is to enable the support for assistive devices in the system preference panel “Universal Access”. And the system language of your Mac has to be set to a language that is supported by Hypnos.
