  1. I'm quite embarrassed. Disk Utility did show the disk as ejectable, but it turns out the disk had already been unmounted--by Carbon Copy Cloner after it had finished its backup. Was confused by the fact that the "Eject" button was not greyed out in "Disk Utility", and because the light on the USB drive was on, but I found that there was no mount under /Volumes. With the drive explicitly mounted, I can see both the "Eject" and "Eject All" commands in Alfred. "Removable Media" still does not show this, but an eject scope of "Local Mounted Volumes" works perfectly. Sorry about the false alarm. And thanks for Alfred. It is easily my favourite piece of software on my Mac.
  2. Tried all three. None of them are working, I'm afraid. I'm trying to eject an external USB drive. The drive shows up in Disk Utility as ejectable. The thing that surprises me the most is not that it is not able to eject the drive, but that Alfred does not seem to recognise the "eject" command at all. It is the same when I enable the "ejectall" command--that command is not recognised either. I even tried changing the "eject" command to some other string, but that is not working either. Just to add--this is the first time I have tried the "eject" command. I had not been using it so far, so it is not something that used to work and suddenly stopped working.
  3. I have the same problem. The "eject" command is not recognised at all and instead displays the default "Search Google for 'eject'" response. The "eject" command is enabled in "Features > System" and I have tried all three eject scopes. I'm using the latest build of Alfred [v2.1.1 (227)] on Mavericks 10.9.1.
  4. Thanks, Shawn. Have added a new version which allows this behaviour to be configured. Nothing as fancy as Shawn's latest workflow -- this just opens up a text editor and allows you to set up the caffeinate flags. Type in "coffee conf" to open the configuration file. To prevent the monitor from going to sleep too, remove the '#' character from the beginning of the line that says "#CAFFEINATE_FLAGS=-ids" and close the file. Look at the manual page of "caffeinate" for other options.
  5. Another caffeinate workflow (uses the built-in "caffeinate" tool, *not* the third-party "Caffeine" app). Unlike the ones I found already, this one uses the result feedback mechanism extensively. You can create jobs with custom times. Any custom jobs you create are remembered and presented in the order of frequency of use. For instance, if you create a custom caffeinate job of 45 minutes once, it will show up in your list from the next run. And depending on how often you re-use that, it will bubble up or settle down in the list of available choices. And, of course, you can cancel existing jobs or reschedule them. This is how you configure the workflow if, for instance, you want display sleep to blocked too. This is the config file you'll need to edit to configure the caffeinate flags: Download it here: https://github.com/venkytv/alfred-caffeinate/raw/master/Alfred-Coffee.alfredworkflow Source: https://github.com/venkytv/alfred-caffeinate Written in perl and has no external dependencies. Will use the Time::Duration module, if available.
