Power Manager 4.6 - Automation and Energy Saving Software for Mac

DssW announced the release of Power Manager 4.6 for Mac. This release adds new Schedule Assistant tasks, Dark Mode support, and numerous refinements.

Hereford, UK - 21 February, 2017 - DssW, the leading developer of Mac energy saving software, today announced the release of Power Manager 4.6 for macOS. This release adds new Schedule Assistant tasks, Dark Mode support, and numerous refinements.

Power Manager is an energy saving solution for macOS. Power Manager enables users to create sophisticated energy saving schedules and to automate complex tasks. Power Manager can power on a Mac, run a series of tasks, and power off the Mac without requiring any interaction.

“Power Manager 4.6 adds new Schedule Assistant tasks dedicated to running a single tool. These tasks will simplify many of our customers’ schedules as no scripting is required.” said Graham Miln, Director. “This update also includes support for Dark Mode, where macOS’s menu bar and Dock are darkened. Getting all this right was trickier than we expected but it turned out well.”

New in this release are seven Schedule Assistant tasks. The Schedule Assistant provides a quick and easy way of creating events. The new tasks help users create events that require a single executable to be run, such as a command line tool. Such events were possible previously but only through the event editor.

The new executable Schedule Assistant tasks include a suggested argument list. This list includes difficult to find values, such as Volume UUIDs needed to automate mounting volumes, and an absolute path item.

Power Manager’s status menu bar has been extended to include a sixty minute delay option. The menu now supports toggling between advancing and delaying pending triggers by holding the Control key.
