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.

Send Article to a Friend

Hypertext '93 Proceedings -- A number of people have asked for information on how to get the proceedings of the Hypertext '93 conference. I don't know the price, but you can find that and other information (such as shipping details, I imagine) by emailing <acmpubs@acm.org>. The proceedings for Hypertext '93 are ACM Order Number 614930 and consist of 32 papers, video descriptions, and panel descriptions, about 300 pages.
