Putting printers to sleep.

by Adam C. Engst

Putting printers to sleep. We've recently caught wind of a useful and politically correct freeware program released by Apple's Energy Star group. The program lets a LaserWriter Pro go to sleep after a specified amount of inactivity to save energy. We applaud Apple for creating a program that not only decreases wear and tear on the printer but also saves energy. So if you own a LaserWriter Pro that spends most of its time turned on, check it out and give your printer some much needed rest. It's available for FTP from <sumex-aim.stanford.edu> as:
