Deep Sleep - Put new laptops into hibernation mode
Authored by: mabino on Oct 18, '06 08:28:20AM

I'd give this utility a 9.5 as it stands because of the way the administrative password requirement is handled.

Mac OS typically presents both a username and password field when requesting administrative privileges. This behavior allows someone to run with standard user privileges day-to-day but also provide administrative privileges when necessary.

Speaking more generally, I'm concerned that a lot of Mac developers (I'm looking at you Google) are unintentionally walking us backward into the current Microsoft Windows situation where the Run As feature doesn't always quite work as it should.

Starting from version 0.8 (released yesterday), the widget works on non-administrator accounts.
Thanks for your feedback.
