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.

SyQuest 3.5" Units

SyQuest 3.5" Units -- Daniel Andresen sent this information about SyQuest drives: "I spoke with a SyQuest rep a Macworld Expo, and she confirmed that the 3.5" 105 MB SyQuest units would be out "within ninety days." She said only the IDE version was finished at this time, with the SCSI version to follow. She also refused to speculate on pricing, and was not even willing to say whether it would be cheaper or more expensive than the 5110c's (5.25" SyQuests)."
