Keep It Up 2.0.1 Adds Remote Management -- Karl Pottie has released Keep It Up 2.0.1, a major upgrade to his $22 shareware server application monitoring tool. Along with a few tweaks from the previous 1.4.1 version, Keep It Up 2.0.1 adds the capability to manage your Mac server remotely via a Web browser. Through its embedded Web server (which runs on a user-specified port and is password-protected), Keep It Up 2.0.1 can provide general information about your server (including uptime, system load, free memory, and free disk space), restart or shut down the machine, quit running applications, and launch user-specified applications. Although Keep It Up 2.0.1 won't replace a remote control tool like Timbuktu Pro, the new features are extremely welcome. Keep It Up 2.0.1 is a 235K download. [ACE]
Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen
When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?
Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.
