No rest for sleepy disks with Disksomnia 3.0 from Digital Heaven
March 28, 2012 in Utility
[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Digital Heaven today is proud to announce the release of Disksomnia 3.0, the popular utility that stops disks from going to sleep. Waiting for disks to wake up can be a frustrating experience for graphic designers, and video/audio content creators who often work with media files located on multiple disks.
Originally released in 2008, previous versions of Disksomnia were specifically aimed at video editors and kept all mounted disks awake whilst Final Cut Express or Final Cut Pro were running. Version 3.0 has been completely rewritten and now offers options for controlling when it runs and which disks it affects. Disksomnia has a negligible overhead so system performance will not be affected and once set up the utility works invisibly in the background to ensure no disks doze off, including those that ignore Energy Saver preferences.
* Runs invisibly in the background
* New! Options are set in System Preferences pane
* New! Keep all disks or only a chosen list of disks awake
* New! Run Disksomnia continuously or only when certain applications are running
* Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or 10.7 Lion
Pricing and availability:
Disksomnia 3.0 is available now for immediate purchase and download from the Digital Heaven online store for $9.99 (USD).
