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.

Ugh, so now "audiophile" has come to mean the same as "mid-fi". I guess we audiophiles now have to invent a new term that means fidelity in musical reproduction.

Contrary to what the referenced article says, audiophile reproduction does not require expensive or exotic equipment. You can get pretty far up the audiophile scale for less money than a lot of mass-produced hi-fi gear. My advice for audiophile shopping: Trust your ears and watch your wallet. Keep that in mind and you can do well.

Mid-fi is better than low-fi. At least it's a step in the right direction!
