JoyBidder Auction Sniper wake up computer from sleep

ron ice gave low ratings on Mozilla addon web site because JoyBidder eBay Auction Sniper " is shareware,$9 dollars to buy,you have to keep your computer running so joybidder can place a bid! ".

Here is my comment on his comment.

First, yes, JoyBidder is not free, but it is among the most affordable among others. The financial incentive justifies my actively developing and supporting this software.

Second, JoyBidder eBay Auction Sniper is a desktop software which runs on your computer so that you don't need to store your eBay password on other people's server. If you are a Windows user, you don't need to have it running all the time to monitor auctions or place scheduled bid. Latest version of JoyBidder can wake up your computer from standby/sleep mode, and place bid and go back to sleep. If you don't know what is standby/sleep mode, here is some articles.

How much electricity does my computer use?

Should You Turn Off Computer -Conserve Energy

To save the trouble of reading, the point is that modern computer's Standby/Sleep mode consumes almost the same electricity as turning off the computer. If you haven't tried run JoyBidder under standby mode, the Standby Mode is the second last button on the toolbar. see picture below.

Thanks for all the registered users who supported the software and all the trial users who had given me helpful suggestions. JoyBidder will be even better.

Happy holiday and have a wonderful new year
