We are pleased to announce the launch of Power Manager 5.1. This update introduces a new trigger and set of related Schedule Assistant tasks.

Power Manager requires macOS 10.12 or later.

Updating Power Manager

Power Manager will automatically check for updates every so often, so there is nothing to do. The update will automatically be offered to you during the next few weeks.

If you want to update to the latest Power Manager now, use the Check for Updates menu item in the Power Manager menu.
