Re: launch an application, and on quit, logout? Donald Hall Wed Jun 24 18:00:39 2009

I publish a little application called Script Timer that should do what you want. It has a background scheduling engine that you arrange to start up at login, and that monitors for events and times at which you want to run scripts or applications. Among many other features it has the ability to run a script when an application you specify quits. So, you could schedule a script to run when your application quits that would log you out.

It looks like Philip has provided the script you need.

Details of Script Timer can be found at

Hope that helps,

I am trying to do something that seems like it should be easy, but I
must not be wording my searches correctly, because what I've mostly
come up with is discussions of how to make a script quit apps and
force a logout.

What I'm trying to do is make an applescript that I can place in a
user's login items.  What I'd like that script to do is:

1.  Launch an application in the user's home area
2.  Wait for that application to quit and when it does
3.  Log the user out

Is that possible?  If so, does anybody have anything they could share?
