Applescript only works during day

Post

Hi!

 

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!!! 

 

MacPro 2.8GHz with MacOSX 10.5.8

FileMaker Pro 9.0v3

 

AppleScript: 

with timeout of (30 * 60) seconds

tell application "FileMaker Pro"

activate

getURL "fmp7://login@IP/DBname"

do script FileMaker script "Import_f32k"

delay 60

quit

end tell

end timeout
