St. Clair Software has updated their CPU-saving utility App Tamer 1.3 with more control over when the AutoStop feature gets activated. With this update, you can set AutoStop to begin working its magic only when your laptop battery falls below a specified charge level, which will help minimize battery drain and speed up recharging. The release also includes several AppleScript commands that enable you to turn AutoStop on and off as well as wake a stopped application in your scripts. Additionally, this version fixes a problem that caused Web browser helper applications to freeze the browser and an issue where disabling AutoStop didn’t actually disable the feature for some machines.

Create Multiple Inspectors in iWork
Tired of flipping between panes in the Inspector in Keynote, Pages, and Numbers? You can open multiple copies of the Inspector window with View > New Inspector, but even better, you can Option-click one of the icons at the top of the Inspector window to open that pane in a new Inspector.
