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.

New Snapz Pro X 1.0.9 Works Better with Panther

New Snapz Pro X 1.0.9 Works Better with Panther -- Ambrosia Software has released Snapz Pro X 1.0.9, improving compatibility with Panther (version 1.0.8 wasn't working for me at all), and fixing a couple of bugs. Ambrosia also removed the Internet version checking feature for unspecified reasons. Snapz Pro X 1.0.9 is a free update for registered users; it's a 4.4 MB download. Note that if you received Snapz Pro X for free with your Macintosh, the update is not free, presumably since Apple didn't license future versions of Snapz Pro X. However, Ambrosia offers a discounted price of $20 (normally $50) for such people; use the second link below. [ACE]
