Power Manager 4.3 - Energy Saving Software for Mac OS X
Power Manager 4.3 for Mac OS X lets users connect to and remotely manage multiple Macs running Power Manager. Also improved is support for Apple's OS X 10.10, Yosemite.
Power Manager is an energy saving solution for Mac OS X. 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 4.3 rewards those running multiple copies of Power Manager." said Graham Miln, Director. "The new network interface makes managing a home or small business network much easier."
Support for Bonjour, ZeroConf, networking has been added throughout Power Manager. The command line tool pmctl now supports resolving and connecting to Bonjour-addressed Macs. This eases workflow integration and writing scripts for dynamic networks.
Complementing the command line support are network improvements in the Power Manager application. The application can now browse Bonjour domains and connect to networked Macs running Power Manager. The application then provides complete control over the networked Mac's settings and schedule.
Remote schedules can be dragged and dropped between Macs. Events can be edited on remote Macs as easily as they can be on a local Mac. These improvements make maintaining Power Manager across a small network trivial.
As with previous versions of Power Manager, all connections are encrypted using SSL/TLS and administrator credentials are required for the Mac being managed.
With OS X 10.10 forthcoming, Power Manager 4.3 improves support for this major operating system update. DssW will release further updates, if required, once Apple has finalised OS X 10.10.
