10.6: Fix sleep problems with SleepWatcher
Authored by: shinew7911 on Dec 02, '10 12:20:08PM
asmeurer, yes it is. Homebrew is just a personal preference of mine and it is easiest one to setup in my experience.

fds, the point of the hint is to help people work around their auto-sleep problem, regardless of the hardware used. And no SleepWatcher is not "just a tool to run your own commands when your machine is going to sleep or waking up.", and no it would not address the issue by "simply having SleepWatcher installed would fix". Feel free to read up the man page linked below to understand what it does.

Andrew, thanks for the detailed explanations. Yes I should've described in more details what each of the option does. This is my first hint and I didn't want to make it longer than it already was, noob mistake :/
But I would also like to add that the advantage of putting the plist in "/Library/LaunchDaemons/" is that once configured, it works on the root level across multiple accounts and it's pretty much maintenance free. Although I strongly recommend copy & paste the code to avoid any typo.

To provide more clarity to those of you who would like to find out more about all the available options for SleepWatcher without installing it, here is its MAN page.
