DssW Releases Power Manager 3

UK, Europe - 1 August 2005 - DssW today released Power Manager 3 for Mac OS X. Schedule when your Mac starts up, shuts down, sleeps, and wakes.

Two months ago DssW launched Sleep Monitor 2 for Mac OS X and today is proud to announce an update to the other half of this powerful duo.

Power Manager 3 has been stripped down and built up to focus on the original intent of the product: the ability to start up and shut down your Mac to a schedule.

Version 3 is the first version on Mac OS X and it as been a long time coming! Power Manager arrives on Mac OS X in style. A single friendly System Preference that offers administrator only control and plays nicely with other power scheduling system software.

Since 1997 Power Manager has found a home in numerous museums, offices, and schools. We have been surprised and delighted to have our users adopt Power Manager in some of the strangest uses. Although probably not so surprising for such a specific tool.

A medical group used scheduled start up and shut down events to rapidly cycle the power circuit hundreds of times on new Macs before deployment: a great check for hardware failures.

Most users though are far more reasonable towards their Macs and desire what we all want: to save money and time. Power Manager is most often used to ensure Macs are switched off at night and on in the morning.

Art galleries and museums with Macs dotted around installations find the easy automation particularly useful.

Power Manager is available today through the DssW web site http://www.dssw.co.uk/powermanager/ for EUR20. System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9 (Panther), Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger), or later.
