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.

Government Recommends Microsoft Breakup

Send Article to a Friend

Government Recommends Microsoft Breakup -- In the latest move in the ongoing antitrust action against Microsoft, last Friday the U.S. government proposed breaking Microsoft into two separate companies for ten years. One company would be tightly regulated and focus solely on Windows operating systems, and the other would encompass all other Microsoft businesses, including Office, online ventures, development tools, server software, Web browsers, games, and much more. Microsoft reiterated its intention to defend itself aggressively against any judgment against it. [GD]
