Power Manager 4.6.0 Released

We are pleased to announce the launch of Power Manager and Power Manager Pro 4.6. This significant update introduces new Schedule Assistant tasks, Dark Mode support, and numerous refinements. We have also continued to work on the internal scheduling engine to ensure it remains modern and efficient.

Updating Power Manager

Power Manager will automatically check for updates every so often, so there is nothing to do. The update will automatically be offered to you during the next few weeks.

If you want to update to the latest Power Manager now, use the Check for Updates… menu item in the Power Manager menu.
