Please always use backup alarms, Wakefy is under continuous improvement and development and may contain bugs that may prevent the alarm from going off under untested scenarios. In any case, always test Wakefy under your current setup first to ensure it will work in the morning. Please let us know if you find any bugs.
Wakefy uses your current Spotify app to wake you up. That's why you need the official app installed and an active internet connection.
Sound won't come off loud enough through headphones, so please make always sure no headphones are plugged in before going to sleep.
Password-protected login prevents any program from launching unless you manually enter your password. Please enable automatic login or just put your computer to sleep instead of turning it completely off.
If you're using a MacBook, please keep your lid slightly open. If your lid is completely closed, the Macbook will go into sleep mode inmediatly after Wakefy wakes it up, before the alarm goes off.
Also, MacBooks prevent auto-wakeup when the computer is completely powered off and a power cord is not connected. Please connect your MacBook to a power outlet or just put it to sleep: Wakefy can wake up a Macbook from sleep mode running just on battery.
This is a known bug that occurs under certain systems when you move the app to the Trash while the app is still open and it has an armed (i.e.: not muted) alarm. This happens because Wakefy relies on some system files to work properly and when you suddently remove the app, you prevent it from firing any uninstall or alarm muting routine.
The quickest workaround would be to download the app again or recover it from the trash, and mute the alarm from there. Renaming or moving the location of the Spotify app will also prevent Wakefy from firing.
Actual solution: We're already working on the best solution to address this issue without preventing Wakefy from working altogether, and will most likely be included in the next version release (v0.2.2)
However, if you're facing this problem and want to remove Wakefy completely from your system now, please follow these steps:
chmod u+x /Users/username/Downloads/uninstall-wakefy-script.command
We try to be really straightforward with the current state of this piece of software. The only reason this list could be updated is because Wakefy is entirely developed, maintained and supported by a single guy named Rameerez and since the app is completely free it's difficult to allocate resources to keep everything up to date.Known bugs:
He suffers from a sleep disorder called DSPS and made Wakefy to help him waking up. After creating it, he realized it could be useful for others, and since he knows the struggle some people suffer when waking up, he made the app free. No one should ever have bad mornings.
