[3:00 PM] Power Management Utility Receives New Public Beta Release

St. clair Software has released version 3.2b6 of the energy-saver software, Sleeper. Sleeper controls the power functions of your Macintosh, much like Apple's Energy Saver control panel. However, Sleeper is not reliant on Apple's Power Manager and thus provides users with more options and finer control. According to St. clair Software:

Sleeper 3.2b6, the latest public beta version of St. Clair Software's screen saver and energy saving utility, is now available for downloading.

This version includes fixes for password problems at startup, wake-up of the screen when a program needs attention, a correction for the spin-up of IDE disk drives, and less confusing operation on Macs that usually use Apple's Energy Saver control panel.

Sleeper is currently available as shareware for US$20. This release is a public beta. You can find more information at the company's web site.
