UK, Europe – 6 February, 2007 – DssW, the leading developer of Mac
energy saving software, today announced the launch of Wake Assist 1.0
for Mac OS X. This free utility helps fix a rare stuck-until-clicked
wake bug in Mac OS X.

Wake Assist helps by providing a couple of automated mouse clicks
after waking from sleep; these clicks help nudge a stuck Mac to fully
wake up.

“We hope this tool delights those few Mac users having problems with
Mac OS X’s energy saving capabilities.” said Graham Miln, DssW’s

Wake Assist needs no setting up. As a daemon process it runs quietly
in the background. When the Mac wakes up Wake Assist checks for user
activity; if no activity is detected, a couple of automatic mouse
clicks are performed to display and hide the Apple menu.

This tool is aimed at users taking advantage of Apple’s Energy Saver
schedule to wake up their Mac without a user being present. This
capability is often used to automate back ups.
