Scheduling Tasks in Internet Cleanup

The Schedule tool lets you create and manage custom Internet Cleanup tasks to be performed at specified times. Running tasks on a schedule can save time and effort, and significantly improve the performance of your Mac.

Scheduled tasks do not execute if you are not logged in, or if your Mac is asleep or turned off.

It is a good idea to schedule a group of tasks to execute at the same time. Internet Cleanup launches once and executes the task in the order you created them. (When a task is running, the Internet Cleanup icon appears in the Dock indicating that Internet Cleanup is operating in the background.)

NOTE: Before mailing from Schedule will work, at least one Apple Mail account must be configured for the user login running scheduled task. This includes saving the Mail password in Keychain. If you are having Mail prompt for a password, notification will not work. If you normally don't use Apple Mail, an account must still be set up, but it can be disabled and mailing from Schedule will still work.
