Do Something When

Do Something When is a system preference pane that allows the user to watch for drives mounting and un-mounting, allowing you to launch or quit applications, when these events happen. You can launch iTunes when your music hard drive gets mounted, you can quit iTunes when you eject the drive. This is just an example of what can be done.

Useful for SuperDuper!. I use it to launch my saved settings file in SP when I plug in my backup disk. Saves a few seconds worth of my time!


By the way, if you don't want your "open at login" apps to open, you can hold the shift key when logging in.

This is an excellent tool to use on a laptop. I want skype to be launched automatically but with the speed of harddrives it takes a while for my machine to become responsibe. So I use this to launch apps with a small delay (all based upon quicksilver launch at start). So I launch adium after 30 seconds, skype after 80 seconds and so on.

All the apps I need show up one after the other, but in case I just boot my computer to check my mail I can do it faster wihtout having to wait for skype or other tools to finish having fun with my laptop HD:
