[8:30 AM] Manage Your Power Powerfully
by Staff

DssW has released Power Manager 1.0. Power Manager enhances the scheduled start up and shut down functions available via the Mac OS Energy Saver panel. According to DssW:

Power Manager is a new system addition for the Macintosh. Power Manager enables your Macintosh to switch on and off automatically to a schedule!

The fully configurable Scheduler enables multiple start ups and shut downs per day. Each day of the week can be independently controlled!
