Asleep at the Wheel

Asleep at the Wheel -- A number of folks commented last week that you can approximate some of the sleep features in the new PCI Power Macs with Sleeper, a $20 shareware control panel from St. Clair Software. Sleeper blanks your monitors and spins down your hard disks, but it does not power down Energy Star monitors. I'm pleased that Apple has done what they have with the new Power Macs, but even still, to me, a sleep mode should work like the one in the PowerBooks does. I want the entire machine down and silent - no moving parts at all - but the Mac should be able to wake up exactly where it left off. I realize that may not be technically possible with the existing chips and system design, but if PowerBooks can do it... [ACE]
