I’ve done some reading that states OS X does run some housekeeping duties in the wee hours of the morning. My problem is that I don’t leave my Mac on all the time.
As such, I downloaded and installed Onyx as it has the ability to run those particular scripts on demand. However, I ran across this message when running the Preferences under the Verify tab:
/Users/mark/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iphotomosaic.plist: Conversion of string failed. The string is empty.
I think the solution is to simply delete this item and iPhoto will create a new one, but I’m not certain. Has anyone run across this particular notation and if so, what was the correct action, if any, to take?
Finally, while searching for information about these housekeeping matters I found something that suggested to me that Snow Leopard will actually run such daily, weekly and monthly scripts at certain times when the computer is actually on instead of at fixed times in the early hours of the day.
Does anyone know if this is accurate? If so, does this make my download of Onyx superfluous in regards only to these housekeeping scripts?
