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.

LetterRip 2.0 Available -- Fog City Software has released LetterRip 2.0, their dead-simple mailing list management software. LetterRip 2.0 adds support for POP (eliminating the need for a dedicated Internet connection), message banners and footers, extensive Apple Event support, message processors, automatic subscribe and unsubscribe accounts (popularized by our <tidbits-on@tidbits.com> and <tidbits-off@tidbits.com> accounts), and multiple domains. We've found LetterRip 1.0 almost painless for managing several small internal lists. LetterRip 2.0 is a free upgrade for existing users. Otherwise, it costs $295 and includes 12 months of support and updates. [ACE]
