HippoConnect 1.0.5

with 3 comments

Hey Mac users!

I just released an update to HippoConnect that addresses two issues you may be experiencing.

First, this update fixes a problem with fast user switching. HippoConnect will now restart when you fast user switch, so that you can properly control your Mac as the new user, rather than continue to be tied to the previous user.

Second, this update addresses an issue in Lion with remotely waking your Mac. Lion is much more energy conscious than previous version of OS X. So if you tried to wake up your Mac over Wi-Fi, it would turn on, but the display would stay off. Great for many situations, but lousy for HippoRemote. This update to HippoConnect will now activate your sleeping display, letting you fully power up your Mac without getting up from the couch.

Here’s the download link.

After downloading, you must toggle HippoConnect off/on for the changes to take effect.

  1. I was looking forward to this fix for a long time. Thanks so much! Works great now with multiple logins.

  2. Hi,
    Ihave tried to connect my iPhone to the mac but besides asking for my password (not a problem) it asks for a account name. My ‘Mac account’? What does this mean?
