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.

Anti-Virus Help

Send Article to a Friend

An alert reader suggested this article, and I think it's an excellent way for the Macintosh community to pay back someone who has devoted much time and effort to it. Here's the situation. Jeff Shulman of Shulman Software and author of the popular shareware Virus Detective recently found himself without gainful employment in West Virginia. Although I'm sure West Virginia is a nice place, it's not exactly a hotbed of high tech, and Jeff has relocated to California, a hotbed of many things high and low tech.

We see two ways in which you can help pay Jeff back for all the work he has put in creating Virus Detective and Virus Blockade II, the combination of which is one of the most sophisticated means of protection available. First, and this is the easiest, if you use these programs but have not paid your shareware fee, we encourage you to do so now. Second, if you know of any regular or contract employment for a skilled veteran Macintosh programmer in the South Bay area, it would be nice to drop Jeff a line about it. Shareware fees and other correspondence should go to:
