Seriously, it brings up a special (non-configurable) window where you can select a time to shut down the system (or do whatever you want).....then after that lapse of time it fires your macro of choice. Kinda neat, but I ended up deleting it from my file because I didn't use it very much. Playing around with it is the best way to figure out how it works.
BTW, I'm interested in your "Help" screens. Mind sharing your config file?
Hah! Indeed it is a sleep timer :-)
The user interface in the editor for the sleep timer is particularly bad--I never noticed that when I clicked the button it stayed selected. They should have instead made a command appear along with the rest of the steps in the macro.
And you are right, a simple experiment cleared that up.
I'll look to post the file soon. I may have implied too much witht he "Help", though. I've got discrete codes for all devices, so I don't need to emulate a Harmony's "Is the TV on?", "Is the AVR on?" ... q&a. Thus it's easy to re-fire the On/Off codes for each device depending on what the current activity wants. So there's one button for refiring all the power commands, and another button to re-enter the current activity which will re-send all the commands to configure the inputs.
I sure wish that the .RCF files were text-based, though, as much of what I have done is replicate the same things repeatedly for each device. If the RCF files were text based then I could have more easily written a perl script to create the RCF for me :-)
