"I coded this app because I always forget to eject my iPod and flash drives before I close the lid of my Macbook Air and just yank it out of the computer at the last minute before running out… Each time I open the lid again, the red alert will pop up, telling me to be good! " - Jiulong Z

1. In order to make autoEJECT manage your disks' ejection properly, please manually eject all your disks before you start autoEJECT, then keep autoEJECT running at all times. You may notice your disks' name listed on the menu under item 'All Ejectable(Click to Eject):'.
2. Special devices are not guaranteed to be ejected, fortunately they normally need not to be ejected before unplugging. As long as your device's name on the menu when you plug it in, autoEJECT will handle it.
3. Not as fast as the modern flash drive, some old USB portable hard disks may take additional time to wake itself up or go sleeping. You may notice the actions by their sounds, so please just wait a few more seconds. :)
4. If some of your external hard drives do not remount themself automatically when Mac wakes up, please make the new option 'Force Remount upon Wake Up' checked.
