Question: How can I set different wake-up and sleep times for different days?

Hello all


I run El Capitan on my Mac Pro 2008 and wish to set it to wake up and sleep at different times during different days. I'd like it to be on all day during the weekends but only during the evenings on weekdays.


Sys Prefs-Energy Saver only lets me select one schedule so that's not useful.


Googling around I found Cronnix which seems to be a GUI for cron and pmset but I'm quite intimidated by that since I know nothing about programming.


I've also found the Power Manager app but at 49 USD that's a bit steep for what I need.


That made me think of Automator - can that be used to set a varied wake-up/sleep schedule? Are there other alternatives?


Thanks very much in advance for your help

Philip
