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.

Default Folder 3.0.7 Squashes Bugs -- St. Clair Software has released Default Folder 3.0.7, an update to the company's shareware utility for improving file access through Open and Save dialog boxes. (See "Tools We Use: Default Folder" in TidBITS-475.) The update fixes a few potentially crashing bugs (including one when Internet Explorer 5 was running), no longer includes invisible folders in its Recent Folder list, and improves handling of its optional pop-up menu for accessing folders from the Finder. The 685K update is free for owners of Default Folder 3.x and those who purchased version 2.x after 31-Jan-98. Otherwise, the program can be updated for $15 or registered in full for $25. [JLC]
