Connectix recently released version 1.0.4 of CDU (Connectix Desktop Utilities), which offers the ability to gracefully shutdown after a user-specified period of inactivity, and to re-open all previously open applications and documents when you turn on the Mac. Because this feature could save a lot of power if used on many machines over time, CDU is the first software program ever that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls "Energy Star Compliant." CDU also offers a variety of utilities that enhance Macintosh operations, including sticky menus, customized pointer, quick access to changing monitor depth or active printer, and more. CDU lists for $99, and registered owners of previous versions can upgrade for $29.95. [TJE]
