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.

Brought to You by the Letter T -- Only two days after releasing the latest version of their flagship product (see "FileMaker Pro 5 Released to Controversy" in TidBITS-499), FileMaker, Inc. released an update to the FileMaker Pro 5 Web Companion. The FileMaker Pro Web Companion 5.0v2 fixes problems where passwords containing the letter "t" would not appear correctly in Web Security databases and corrects a problem referencing custom HTML error pages. Updaters are available for both Mac and Windows versions of FileMaker 5, and both measure approximately 600K. [JLC]
