Problem with Wait step
I have a script with a Wait step. It's supposed to start at 20:30 and most of the time it does. However, lately it's been starting at random times - 02:16, 00:30, 07:14, 05:43, etc. Any ideas what that might be?

Not really.

Our solution
Just in case this happens to someone else...

We decided that for some unknown reason, occasionally the machine was going to sleep and woke up at random times to start the script. We reworked the script so that rather waiting until a specific time to start, it now waits 5 minutes and checks to see if its the start time. If not, it waits another 5 minutes and checks, etc. It doesn't seem to fall asleep any more since it's doing something every 5 minutes.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 02:21 PM.
