Digital Heaven Releases Disksomnia 2.0

One of the leading creators of software for Apple's Pro Apps, Digital Heaven, has announced the release of Disksomnia 2.0 - a new version of the popular free disk utility for Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express.
This new version adds compatibility with Mac OS X Snow Leopard among other refinements.
Disksomnia solves the common problem of some external disks ignoring the disabled sleep option in the Energy Saver pane of System Preferences. For video editing, where media files may be spread around multiple external disks, waiting for the disk to wake up again can be problematic, especially when playing an edited sequence.
Disksomnia runs invisibly in the background and detects when Final Cut Pro or Final Cut Express are running. Every 55 seconds, Disksomnia scans the mounted disks and writes a single hidden file to all external disks.
This regular "poking" of the disks keeps them awake and ensures that the editing process is as smooth as possible. The application has a negligible overhead so system performance will not be affected and after installation requires no further intervention from the user.
Disksomnia 2.0 for Mac OS X is free and available by registering on the Digital Heaven website:
