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.

Delivering on its promise to raise the Macintosh performance ceiling as PowerPC technology improves, Apple today introduced the Power Macintosh 8100/110. The new Mac incorporates a 110 MHz version of the PowerPC 601 processor and costs $6,379.

Apple expects quantities of the new model, available in a single configuration with 16 MB of RAM, a 2 GB hard drive, and built-in CD-ROM drive (item M3561LL/A), will be limited for the first few weeks. Those who must have the fastest possible computer, however, may find the unit worth waiting for. The new model will crunch numbers about a third faster than earlier Power Macintosh 8100/80 models.

The Power Mac 8100/110 will be aimed at high-end computing users such as publishing, technical, and multimedia software users. All current configurations of the 8100/80 model will remain available. No 8100/110 logic board upgrade is planned at this time.
