Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.1 Released -- Now Software has released Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.1, adding a wide variety of minor enhancements and bug fixes to the calendaring and contact management suite. Improvements include new keyboard shortcuts, support for Unsanity's Smart Crash Reports reporting application (which you must install separately), more-complete scroll wheel support, enhanced printing, improved Web publishing, and more. Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.1 is a free update for registered users, and the 17.5 MB download is definitely worthwhile. [ACE]
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.
