UK, Europe – 29 October 2007 – DssW today announced the launch of Power
Manager 3.7 for Mac OS X. Power Manager 3.7 helps schools and businesses
reduce their carbon footprint. Power Manager 3.7 introduces support for Mac
OS X 10.5 (Leopard), a new wake action, and time zone support.
“Delivering a single version of Power Manager that spans three generations
of Mac OS X makes deploying Power Manager as your energy saving solution
much easier.” said Graham Miln, DssW’s director. “With the new wake action,
Power Manager is even more efficient at saving energy in a busy office.”
Power Manager now supports a wake up action to complement the existing
‘start up or wake’ action. The new wake action improves Power Manager’s
flexibility when used with a typical office schedule. If a colleague is
sick or away, their Mac can be shut down without needing to consider Power
Manager. Their Mac will remain off, saving energy until the next scheduled
start up event. This improvement helps Power Manager better fit a busy
Power Manager 3.7 introduces time zone support. When a Mac’s time zone
changes, Power Manager immediately updates the schedule to ensure scheduled
events occur as expected. Time zone support ensures Power Manager is both a
good travelling companion and suitable for global deployments. This
improvement particularly helps Power Manager users who frequently travel
with their laptops.
Power Manager 3.7 includes other improvements and bug fixes detailed in the
release notes, including improved documentation, status menu, and Quick
Power Manager helps schools and businesses save energy by automating Mac
computers. Users can schedule their Macs to start up or wake, shut down,
restart, log out, switch to the login window, wake, and sleep.
Power Manager scales from one Mac to ten thousand with ease and is suitable
for managed environments. Power Manager 3.7 includes an administrator guide
and bug fixes that ease network deployment.
