Wake On Demand in Snow Leopard

Putting your Mac to sleep saves power, but it also disrupts using your Mac as a file server, among other purposes. Wake on Demand in Snow Leopard works in conjunction with an Apple base station to continue announcing Bonjour services that the sleeping computer offers.

While the requirements for this feature are complex, eligible users can toggle this feature in the Energy Saver preference pane. It's labeled Wake on Network Access for computers that can be roused either via Wi-Fi or Ethernet; Wake on Ethernet Network Access or Wake on AirPort Network Access for wired- or wireless-only machines, respectively. Uncheck the box to disable this feature.

No TidBITS Issue on 22 November 2010

Send Article to a Friend

Next week is the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, so we won’t be publishing an email issue on 22 November 2010 as we get ready for family and food. (I for one will be consulting Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner” ebook, which is also now available in the iBookstore—which it isn’t yet possible to link to—and as an iPhone app, for my dinner preparations.)

Although the weekly email edition of TidBITS won’t appear on Monday, we’ll no doubt continue to post to the TidBITS Web site. Check back at the site or subscribe to the our RSS feed or Twitter stream to keep up with everything we’re writing. And look for the next email issue on 29 November 2010!
