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.

GoLive CyberStudio Gets Personal -- For some Web designers, the term "fully featured" can be interpreted as "extras I'll pay for but not use." GoLive is addressing budget-conscious users with the $99 CyberStudio Personal Edition, which includes most of the core Web-creation features of CyberStudio, but without some of the original's advanced features. Designers can lay out Web pages visually, edit HTML and JavaScript source code, and manage a site's files from within CyberStudio Personal. Features available only in the professional edition include integrated Dynamic HTML (DHTML), Cascading Style Sheets, grep-style search and replace, QuickTime 3.0 support, HTML 4.0 support, WebObjects support, and some built-in file transfer options. GoLive is offering free competitive upgrades for owners of full versions of PageMill, BBEdit, Home Page, Dreamweaver, Microsoft Front Page, NetObjects Fusion, and Symantec Visual Page; to qualify, users must either send their competitive software to GoLive or bring the packages to the GoLive booth at Web Design and Development '98 in San Francisco (23-Jun-98 to 26-Jun-98), or Macworld Expo in New York City (08-Jul-98 to 10-Jul-98). A free 30-day trial version is available as an 8.7 MB download. [JLC]
