Applescript only works during day




I have an odd problem that I have not been able to find an answer for...


I use an applescript to open a filemaker database that is hosted with FileMaker Server. The script runs fine if I initiate it, but when I use iCal or any remote triggered applications, I get an error message "Object Not Found". I have also tried saving the applescript as an application, but this also results with the same error. The script works when I am using the computer- ie, if i set the applescript to run at 1PM and i am using the computer at 1PM, the applescript initiates and runs just fine. I have the energy settings set to never sleep.


Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a simple workaround or fix?


thanks so much!!!
