About Backup Monitor 1.0

Source code   Download Backup Monitor  

I wrote this application to power off my Mac after the next Time Machine backup.

The main window shows a few details to the time machine status. And if you click on the checkbox the application waits for the backup to be done. After the backup is done, an application called "PostBackup.app" is launched. Two example applications are included. One to sleep and one to shutdown the Mac. Move the application you need into the Backup Monitor folder.


If you like to automate this, you can use any script language. To give you a few examples:


In AppleScript:

tell application "Backup Monitor" to activate

In Terminal:

open /Applications/Backup\ Monitor/Backup\ Monitor.app

If you place a file/folder named "AutoMode" in the same folder as the applicaiton, the checkbox will be checked at launch.


In AppleScript:

tell application "Backup Monitor" to quit
