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.

Matthew Cravit <13501mbc@ibm.cl.msu.edu> writes "A colleague of mine at work just purchased a Centris 660AV and AudioVision monitor. After sorting out the adapter mix-up, he tells me that the adapter has one glaring weakness. If you plug something in to the Video In port on the monitor, the adapter completely ignores that signal. In other words, the Video In jack on the AudioVision monitor is useless." [Noah Price of Apple was kind enough to confirm this, but he noted that the video input signal is present on the large cable, so a third party could make an adapter that brings it through to the video input port on the AudioVision monitor. -Adam]
