Time Out icon Time Out
You deserve a break

The Next break time is erroneous.

When Time Out activates it reports -22xxxxxxxxxx minutes to the next normal break time.

I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.8 on a PowerBook G4.

Apologies if this bug has already been reported.

Re: The Next break time is erroneous.

Do you have normal breaks enabled or disabled? What about micro breaks?

Re: The Next break time is erroneous.

I am experiencing the same issue on my iMac Core2 duo with Mac OS X 10.5.8.
Resetting T/O to defaults, computer restart or reinstall do not remedy the situation. Modifying the normal or micro breaks seems to have no effect.
Can't find any files in the Library that may be relevant, viz plist.

Please try entering this command in Terminal:

defaults write com.dejal.timeout DebugScheduler YES

Then look at the Console to see what Time Out says; it will indicate when upcoming breaks are due. If it looks wrong, please post here.

Re: The Next break time is erroneous.

Normal time reverts to date 1/1/01
micro date and time OK (micro not on)

Console:
16/04/12 12:58:06 PM Time Out[901] Idle 1.1 secs; normal due 1/01/01 10:00 00, micro due 16/04/12 13:07 21

Try choosing the Break > Reset Breaks command in Time Out, to see if that helps.

If it doesn't, quit Time Out, trash the preferences file (~/Library/Preferences/com.dejal.timeout.plist), then re-launch Time Out, and see if that fixes it.

Thanks for suggestions David.
However neither the Reset Breaks nor trashing the plist remedies the problem.

Re: The Next break time is erroneous.

Okay, I've investigated, and traced the issue. It is a problem with passing the normal break due date to the break agent.

I'll fix this in the next release. In the meantime, you can ignore it.

Thanks for your help!

Re: The Next break time is erroneous.

OK thanks David
