Power Manager 3.5 - Reduce Your Mac's Energy Costs

UK, Europe - 4 January, 2007 - DssW, the leading developer of Mac energy saving software, today announced the launch of Power Manager 3.5 for Mac OS X. The new version of Power Manager makes energy saving easy. Power Manager 3.5 introduces a Schedule Assistant to help users start saving immediately; a status menu that provides quick access to upcoming events; and AppleScript, Automator, and UNIX scripting to give advanced users greater control over their schedule.

The status menu gives users easy access to their schedule. It takes advantage of new flexible scheduling in Power Manager 3.5, allowing users to cancel or delay any pending event with a single click. The status menu features a new Quick Schedule function, the fastest way to schedule one-off events.

Power Manger 3.5 has some great new features for administrators and advanced users. “Scheduling your Mac has never been so easy,” said Graham Miln, DssW’s director. “The new engine puts the full capabilities of Power Manager in the hands of our users.” Applescript, Automator, and UNIX scripting, allows administrators to control and customise Power Manager 3.5 to meet the individual needs of their organisation. Security is now delegated to the Mac OS X authentication services, providing better integration of Power Manager 3.5 with existing solutions.

The Power Manager System Preference features an improved interface, allowing users to name events in their schedule; and undo support, giving users the freedom to experiment. The System Preference is home to the Schedule Assistant. The Schedule Assistant helps users get started with Power Manager 3.5 by creating a customised schedule to suit their lifestyle.

Other new features include launchd support, improved notification dialogs, and software update checks.

Power Manager helps users save energy by automating their Macs. Users can schedule their Macs to start up or wake, shut down, restart, log out, switch to the login window, and sleep.

Whether you have one Mac or 10,000, Power Manager makes saving energy simple.
