Midnight... When it's time to leave your Mac for a while, you want a nice quick way of putting it to sleep and a little bit of flexibility in how you do it.

Midnight can either put your Mac into its standard sleep mode or into hibernation mode (also referred to as 'safe sleep' or 'deep sleep').

In addition to choosing a particular sleep mode you can choose whether your Mac should switch to the log-in screen before going to sleep.

If your Mac doesn't support safe sleep you can still use Midnight but the hibernation option will be disabled.

Midnight is a clever little fella and can handle all this for you without ever needing to know your administrator's password.

Apple only officially supports safe sleep on the PowerBook G4 (Double-Layer SD) together with all of the new Intel books and desktops, so Midnight does just the same.

Donations gratefully received.

What's New

Version 1.1.1 of Midnight fixes a bug in normal (non-hibernation) sleep mode where after the first usage Midnight would need to be refreshed before it would allow sleep to be used again.
