You deserve a break

break after sleep

The break counters are not reset by sleeping (eg for the night)

Thus i can login in the morning, and immediately get a break, and since i try to time longer 1 hour breaks this totally disrupts my usage of timeout - hope there is a setting for it, or that it will be fixed, i have both reset break options ticked

Re: break after sleep

They should reset, if you have those Exclusions page checkboxes on.

I'd be interested in seeing the Console log around when you wake the computer. Please turn on the Scheduler logging option on the Advanced page of the preferences, then the next time this occurs, open Console (in Applications ▶ Utilities), copy the recent Time Out entries around that time (say 5 minutes either side), and either paste into a reply, or email to me.

Re: break after sleep

Hi, what a lot of information in that Console, i found an entry that seemed relevant from today when i opened my mac after sleep and immediately had a break :)

Re: break after sleep

Unfortunately those aren't useful. Try selecting your Mac in the Devices sidebar, and entering "Time Out" in the filter field in the toolbar.

You should see lines similar to the following:
