Energy saver preferences

Message #1 - Posted 2006/04/11 - John Heaney

does anyone know a way to have more than one custom setup in the Energy Saver System Preferences. I find myself revisiting it way too often. I don't understand why they don't have named sets like they do with Network preferences, for example. It gets annoying.

I agree with you! Although it isn't much better than constantly tweaking the preferences, there's a program called Jiggler that will move the cursor every so often to keep my monitor from sleeping when I'm watching a video, but I still have to remember to start it. It would be nice to have more options for days of the week, and something like the Location menu under the apple menu.
