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.

Get Rich Quick? Inspired by last year's $10,000 Macintosh Web server security challenge (see TidBITS-317), Sweden's Joakim Jardenberg is conducting a Macintosh Web server "Crack a Mac" challenge. From 10-Feb-97 through 10-Apr-97, Joakim is offering a cash prize to anyone who can alter the contents of the home page on a standard Macintosh Web server set up for the contest running WebSTAR 2.0. The prize this time is 10,000 Swedish crowns (about $1,350 U.S.), but it's worth noting that no one claimed the prize from last year's challenge. Perhaps the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, whose Web pages were recently cracked, should think about hosting them on Macintosh servers. [GD]
