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.

I watched this with great interest. The questions were great... as I am about the same age... and am getting ready to set up my "new" gen.3 iPad. I also have the new Apple TV and wish that all video Podcasts were at least 720p or 1080p. Now that I have all the latest (Apple) gadgets and watch most of my "TV" through iTunes and the internet (although I have DirecTV Premium) I am mostly looking for "Hi-Def" video. Thanks for a great show. Perhaps in the future they can be a little higher video quality.
