[prMac.com] UK, Europe - 29 October 2007 - DssW, the leading developer of Mac energy saving software, 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 office environment.
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 Schedule.
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.
Pricing and Availability:
Power Manager is available today through the DssW web site, for EUR20 (US$29). Scaled discounts for +100 Macs are available. System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later. Version 3.7 is free for users of Power Manager 3.
