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.

Conflict Catcher 3 Conflict

Conflict Catcher 3 Conflict -- Nathan Ainspan <nda1@cornell.edu> writes:
There is one problem with Conflict Catcher 3 that has been recognized and corrected. People with Open Sesame from Charles River Analytics will find that CC3 will conflict with this application and cause the computer to either hang or crash. When I called Casady and Greene's tech support line, we spent about twenty minutes trying to figure out the problem until the telephone rep heard that I had Open Sesame on my machine. He instantly knew what the problem was - the two applications try to write to or utilize the same bit of the system. A patch is available from Charles River Analytics. [The patch is available in Casady & Greene's online forums on the commercial services, although not their Web page yet. I've uploaded the patch to Macgifts, so it should appear on the Internet in a few days. -Adam]
