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.

Now Up-to-Date & Contact Are Now Up to Date -- Power On Software is delivering on its promise to continue development of Now Up-to-Date & Contact, its calendar and contact combo purchased from Qualcomm earlier this year. Version 3.8 fixes compatibility issues with Mac OS 8.5 and later, solves problems associated with its Internet features, and includes Now Up-to-Date & Contact Web Publisher for free (it was formerly a separate $400 product). Power On claims that Palm device synchronization is scheduled to arrive in an upcoming version 3.9, tentatively scheduled for early 2000. Now Up-to-Date & Contact costs $90; owners of previous versions can upgrade for $40. A fully functional 30-day demo is a 4.6 MB download. [JLC]
