QuickTime 7.1.1 Released -- Apple posted a small update to QuickTime last week that is a big deal for some Adobe customers. QuickTime 7.1.1 fixes a problem that interfered with installation of Adobe Creative Suite 2 (CS2) on Intel-based Macs. It also corrects an issue with exporting Keynote presentations to iDVD and "addresses an issue with 3rd party start-up items on Intel Macs." QuickTime 7.1.1 is available via Software Update or as a 49.4 MB stand-alone download. [JLC]
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.
