DealBITS Drawing for browseback Still Open -- As you may or may not have noticed, we had a spot of trouble with our server last week. Much hair was lost, but more important, most DealBITS entries from Monday and Tuesday and early Wednesday morning were also lost. Everything should be working properly again now, so if you entered DealBITS to win one of three copies of SmileOnMyMac's Web history utility browseback and did not receive an email confirmation of your entry, please enter again at the link below. Don't worry about possible duplicates; my system will find and eliminate them. My apologies for the inconvenience; the problem was quite subtle and, annoyingly, I couldn't personally reproduce it, which made troubleshooting more difficult. Wet noodle self-flagellation will now commence. [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.
