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.

IN CONTROL Offer

Send Article to a Friend

IN CONTROL Offer -- I guess Attain liked Matt Neuburg's review of IN CONTROL in the last issue since they have made it easier for TidBITS readers to check out the program and expand their wardrobes at the same time. If you order via email to <tidbits@attain.com> you will receive IN CONTROL 2.0 and an IN CONTROL t-shirt for $75, which includes shipping within the U.S. That's about $10 cheaper than mail order, and you get the t-shirt. I didn't receive further details in time, but I assume you would have to include your shipping address, telephone number, and credit card type, number, and expiration date.
