waking up a powerbook with ether-wake



  • 1. distribution, key generation, sales, etc...
    Hope this isn't the wrong newsgroup for this. I'm very close to finishing a piece of software I've writen and would not like to start getting in to distribution for it. I have my domain name, website, and now need ... - a way to let people purchase it online - once purchased, generate keys (different keys for different upgrades) - and have those keys emailed immediately after a successful purchase. Are there complete systems out there? Components for each requirement, etc... I'm just looking for something that I can get familiar with and put a plan together along w/ some general terms to help my research. Any help much appreciated.
  • 2. Is OS X open source?
    A cousin of mine is adamant about OS X being open source. He says OS X is only a trademark that Apple puts over Darwin. When I replied I never heard about this, he answered: "Why do you believe developers would work for free on Darwin otherwise? Apple just wants to make clear that it won't provide support on hardware they haven't sold." That was it, I was stuck. But recently, I read about Psystar. If Darwin and OS X are the same, why doesn't Psystar use Darwin and put its name over it? I'm sure that within days, it would be clear that the OS they're using is really OS X. As a bonus, they wouldn't have to pay for OS X! I'll see my cousin again next Christmas. I hope you people can provide some arguments that won't be too easily trumped :)
  • 3. Why do Apple Mail accounts go off-line spontaneously?
    Often, I have a window pop up asking for my password for accounts that have gone off-line for no apparent reason. I just go to the Mailbox menu and put all accounts back on line without reentering a password. What causes the account to go off-line? It usually happens when I have used another application and go back to Mail. Bill -- As the years go by, dying just before having to fill out a tax return has merit.

Making conclusions on school systems based on a handful of posts/posters on usenet is unsound. It may not be the system's fault that some are poor students, or poorly taught, or there may be several dozen other reasons why reading and writing abilities may be low in a small sample.

waking up a powerbook with ether-wake

Postby Akop Pogosian » Sun, 16 Jul 2006 04:40:40 GMT

I am trying to use a Linux system to send a wake-on-lan packet to a
powerbook that's running MacOS 10.3.x. The command I am using is

ether-wake -D -i eth0 00:30:65:F9:C1:62

So far, it doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?

In article <e98rvo$1lih$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

I use WakeOnLan, so I'm not familiar with ether-wake but:
Does the PoserBook support wake-on-lan?
If so, is the option enabled in the Energy Saver "Options" panel?
Is the lid of the PowerBook open or does it have an external monitor and 
keyboard attached?

1.strange "spontaneous" system wake ups

hi there

i experience strange system wake ups of my mac os x 10.3 system on a
flatpanel iMac:

at night i put the computer to sleep, but _sometimes the system
spontaneously wakes up in the middle of the night.
i thought the ethernet/broadband connection might cause it but i think it
happens as well without ethernet plugged in...
the other cause could be the wireless apple keyboard, however in the
appropriate preferences i left the box " bluetooth is allowed to wake up"

do other people have similar experiences? and what can i do to avoid this

thanks, leo

2.Wake on LAN or Wake for Ethernet network administrator access

I can't seem to find the check box to enable this option for my
MacBook Pro running 10.5.6
I thought it was supposed to be under power management options.. but I
don't see it.

4.sleeping powerbook won't wake

I've got a 1GHz G4 17" Powerbook running 10.3.7 (I don't think I upgraded 
to 10.3.8, but maybe my wife did ) that all suddenly went to sleep while 
I was downloading a large file (it wasn't anywhere near done).  It 
shouldn't have gone to sleep because I was actively using it... but it's 
definately sleeping, the white LED is pulsing.  I've never seen this 
happen before.

I've tried to force a reboot by holding down the power button, but it 
doesn't respond.  Is there another way to force it to wake and/or reboot 
without having to wait for the battery to run down (which could take a 
few days with it sleeping like this).
