Location-aware Macbook Settings • Andrew J. Freyer


New Release...0.5060

"Non-Wifi Location" is the named location for a wifi-less area - set snapshots, link groups, etc.

I do not think that I will add the feature to automatically turn off Wifi. My main reason is that the primary purpose of AL is automatic location determination via Wifi. If a snapshot could turn off the airport, a new scan would either need to turn it back on (slow process, and is against users' desire of turning wifi off), or the user would manually have to turn wifi back on before the scan could complete (defeats the "automatic" part).

So, I'm at an impasse with respect wifi power. For now, hopefully, "Non-Wifi Location" will provide a workable solution.
