Add more flexibility to location management with a free app
Authored by: Andrew J Freyer on May 05, '10 05:18:21PM

Yes, but there's a caveat.

AL can set your OSX Network Location (just set which one you want and then take a Snapshot) based on your laptop's physical location.

However...

If your network locations turn your Airport card off, AL will not be able to detect where you are next time the laptop is awakened because it uses wifi to determine your location.

I WILL add in a future release the option to determine your location with ethernet, which would then permit the Airport card to be turned off.

Give it a try, and let me know how it goes - through email I can find a solution that'll hopefully address your needs.
