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.

Express Yourself to Microsoft -- Microsoft's new Macintosh Office development team (about 100 developers dedicated to working on the Macintosh version of Microsoft Office 97) has posted a set of survey questions on the Web, the answers to which they hope will help them make Office more Mac-like. The mainstays of Office, Excel and Word, are among the most important Macintosh applications - without them, the Mac would have little to no chance of being sold in quantities to large businesses. Thus, it's in all of our interests to encourage Microsoft to create more Mac-like applications, much as the MS Bay team is doing with the Mac version of Internet Explorer. [ACE]
