My Most Used App

Saw the poor reviews and thought I’d chip in.

I’ve been using Don’t Sleep! for just over a year now and it’s easily my most used app. Every day, at some point, I’ll ⌘-Space, ‘Don’, ⌘-Click the icon. It’s incredibly easy to activate and, for me, does what it says it does with incredibly simple activation / de-activation.

I study a lot from textbooks on my laptop so this is absolutely necessary. Well recommended!


Firstly, its free, so don't be expecting much in the way of preferances, this app has 3! and is not customizable in any way, and secondly, it dosent work! i have a pro running mountain lion and it slept, sorry but 1 star for this terrable waste of hard drive space.

does not work with high sierra
