DssW announces Power Manager 2.1 for the Macintosh. Designed for
AppleScripters, network administrators and professional Macintosh users,
Power Manager can both automate your workflow and reduce running costs.
Power Manager is a unique suite of Macintosh automation and power
Using Power Manager's scheduling capabilities you can easily control when
your Macintosh automatically starts up, shuts down, wakes up and sleeps.
Our latest version of Power Manager features three Schedulers to cater to
Power Manager's Launcher can automatically run your AppleScripts, launch
your applications and open your documents at any time or on a specific
trigger. Triggers include: start up, shut down, specific date and time,
daily, weekly, monthly, wake up, system sleep, user log in and user log
out. Triggers can be further refined with optional conditions and
modifiers. Conditions include: specific time periods, days, months, user
name, frequency and idle time.
Power Manager incorporates and extends the capabilities of the Energy Saver
system addition. Extended features include using Power Manager to ensure
that your Macintosh does not sleep while particular applications are in
use, such as CD or MP3 players.
Power Manager fully supports AppleScript. 30 sample AppleScripts
demonstrate the extensive dictionary provided. Our new version introduces
new AppleScripting features for the professional user. Scripts can now be
attached directly to the Launcher's actions. Using attached scripts you can
add your own conditions and respond directly to events such as triggers.
Power Manager supports multiple and remote configurations to make its
administration a breeze. Detailed logging and password protected user modes
ensure your settings remain constant even in multiple user environments.
Control Strip, Location Manager and Keychain integration and support make
sure Power Manager blends seamlessly into your Macintosh.
Version 2.1 supports System 7.6 through to Mac OS 9.1 on both 68K and PPC
(including G3, G4 and iMac) Macintosh computers. Power Manager requires no
processor time between scheduled actions and non-intrusively resides on
your Macintosh until needed.
