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.

Netscape 1.1N Released

Send Article to a Friend

Netscape 1.1N Released -- In case you missed the hype, Netscape Communications Corp. released version 1.1N of its Netscape Navigator Web browser last week. This version doesn't offer much functionality that wasn't available in earlier betas (see TidBITS-267 for some details), although it does represent a major improvement from version 1.0N, the last official release. Although Netscape 1.1N can't be described as bug-free (for instance, the image display problems on monochrome machines are more annoying than ever), it does fix several crashing bugs present in the earlier betas.

Netscape's FTP site can still be difficult to get into, so check their list of approved mirrors if you have trouble. Be sure to read the licence agreement before using or mirroring this version of Netscape; also, check their site for pricing, support availability, and upgrade information. [GD]
