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.

"Take Control of Customizing Panther" in Japanese -- Our industrious Japanese translators have done it again! We're pleased to announce the release of the Japanese translation of Matt Neuburg's "Take Control of Customizing Panther," which is now available for $7.50. We're once again offering this version free to Japanese speakers who have already purchased the English version of Matt's ebook. To download your copy, click the Check for Updates button on the first page of "Take Control of Customizing Panther" and click the download link in the Web page that appears. The free download link will work through 01-Jun-04. If you don't have the current 1.2 version of "Take Control of Customizing Panther," your copy won't have the Check for Updates button, so you'll need to upgrade to 1.2 with the instructions we sent on 10-Apr-04. If you have trouble, send email to Tonya at <tc-comments@tidbits.com>. [ACE]
