Not sniping in Mavericks

Reported by Michael Yeats | April 20th, 2014 @ 07:59 PM | in 2.1 Release

Since upgrading my mini, I've lost 5 snipes; the program has not worked once. I did find that the energy saving configuration had automatically reset itself so that the computer slept through the first three snipes, but after I changed it to never sleep, it still won't snipe. The report suggested that it was still sleeping through the snipe, not waking in time. I lost two today that hurt. PLEASE advise.

    I have also lost some good auctions--- please fix this! Why is this not part of the FAQ?
    Exact same problem-- I upgraded to a 2012 Mini which is now running the latest Mavericks.
    My mac was always set to sleep before and that never interfered with sniping (2010 iMac running 10.6.8)
    Now the log says it slept through the snipe, even though I completely disabled sleep, "power nap," anything I could find related to sleep.
    Effectively this program is now completely useless.
    Still very bummed about that first one-- would have happily paid $102 and it sold for $25!

    I've solved it.... Googled the general problem, and found that Mavericks has a new feature called 'APP NAP' that automatically puts certain apps to sleep if they are dormant for a period of time, even though the hard drive is not sleeping. Apple's idea of energy conservation. You can turn this feature off, app by app, by going to your Applications file, finding Jaybidwatcher, rightclicking on it, and click 'get info'. it will bring up a panel on the left of your screen which lower down gives you the option of 'disabling app nap.' check the box, and that's it. Problem fixed. Jaybidwatcher should release a notice about this rather than let us all figure this out one by one. IMHO. Good luck to all.

    #resolve Greetings,I have posted a few times on the forums about it, and I also built a native OSX component for the next version that directly disables app nap for JBidwatcher.  It blindsided me a bit that they'd ship a feature that broke me that badly...

    I'm glad you were able to find a solution for it; best of luck with your auctions!

    Thanks Michael,
    Can you (or Morgan) please explain what you mean by the "applications file?"
    I was pretty sure I already disabled "App nap" (what I meant when I typed "power nap.")

    Thanks, Morgan, for your reply and for all you've done. Yes, Apple sort of threw us all a curve ball.

    Neal, if you click on the finder face, either at the top of your vertical Icon bar, or (I'm guessing) on the left of your horizontal Icon bar, you'll find your computer displayed... applications, documents, pictures, music, iPhoto, hard drives, all aspects of your computer. Then follow my instructions-- locate the applications folder, and right-click jaybidwatcher.app ....etc. best of luck!
    Michael
