I need to make a confession. I wrote shell scripts that will automatically turn on my system and will download games and movies for me after office hours, using office internet

    How does the shell script turn the computer on if the computer is turned off? 🤨

    It makes 0 sense 🤔

    @PerfectAsshole Maybe using a external computer

    That script was responsible for turning off the system, then turning it back on

    @HampusMa it was a shell script. That put my system on sleep for 1 hour daily at 6 and then start the downloading when it turns on. Then on complete, shutdown the system

    So a script keeps running *after* a computer has been put to sleep? Is it really sleeping then? Wtf?
