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.

MacWEEK to Roll into MacCentral

Send Article to a Friend

MacWEEK to Roll into MacCentral -- After eleven years in print and three more years online after the print transformation into eMediaweekly (which itself lasted only five months), MacWEEK is finally no more. As of today, Mac Publishing, Ltd. will integrate MacWEEK's content into the MacCentral site. When Mac Publishing acquired MacCentral, MacWEEK's focus on industry news analysis had trouble finding the right fit between MacCentral's emphasis on frequently updated news and Macworld's editorials, features, and reviews. Though the online MacWEEK has long lacked the strong community presence of the old print version, we're still sorry to see it go, and we wish the best to the seven employees laid off in the reorganization of Mac Publishing's online operations. MacWEEK will always have a place in our memories - the white lies seemingly everyone used on the free subscription forms, the Mac the Knife columns from when rumors felt important, and the impact MacWEEK editor Robert Hess's death had on the entire industry.
