I am on a M2 Max Mac studio running macOS Sonoma Version14.2.1.
I’m trying to run several automations that use the scheduling feature of various automation apps so that no user interaction is required for the automations to run.
When the Mac first wakes up at 8 AM in the morning, but it does not stay awake without any user interaction long enough. This means that as soon as it wakes up, the display goes right back to sleep in less than a minute without giving time for any automations to launch.
I’ve tried pmset and Power Manager but the Mac still doesn’t stay awake long enough to run any automations. For whatever reason, Apple removed the Energy Saver preference panel from macOS way back in macOS Ventura’s System Settings.
There no setting to edit here, really.
I don’t know how to increase the time between when it wakes up and goes back to sleep without user interaction. Can anyone help?
Same result. Without user interaction, the screen turned on for a few seconds and then went back to sleep. Also, none of the automations launched automatically; they needed user input. I can only assume that’s because the screen was off, and I know that no modern automation applications can wake a Mac yet. I don’t know how to solve this issue. I need help from the Mac Power Users community.
