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.

Sold For Dollars and Sense

Send Article to a Friend

Software Toolworks will acquire Monogram, maker of Dollars and Sense, a popular home finance package, at the end of June. Owners of Dollars and Sense need not worry, though, since Software Toolworks will continue to support Dollars and Sense, and the upgrade to version 5.0 will still be released in a month or so. Software Toolworks is retaining the list of people who have requested the upgrade to version 5.0, but if you are curious it might be best to call and confirm. The CompuServe forum run by Monogram will be closing but may be re-opened by Software Toolworks. Calling them and requesting the support forum would probably help to ensure its return.

Monogram -- 800/356-5988 -- 213/533-5120 (tentative)
Software Toolworks -- 818/885-9000
