Combine sleep and eject system command

Recommended Posts



is there a way to combine the system commands "sleep" and "eject" in a workflow without using any extra scripts? If not, how would a script look like for ejecting a special external drive?


Thanks for helping




There isn't a way to just easily do that because the Eject command isn't available as an action. However I think this could be done with a little applescript. I think you should be able to create a workflow with an input keyword, and add two actions, a Run Script and a System Command. Set the system command to sleep, and the Run Script.... set language to /usr/bin/osascript, and do something like...

tell application "Finder"
  eject disk "My Drive"
end tell
