Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Espresso is an easy to use menu bar app that helps you prevent your Mac from automatically going to sleep, dimming screen or starting screen savers, even if you close the lid of your MacBook.
- You can set the time that your MacBook must stay awake.
- You can choose to keep your display awake or your system awake.
- Very useful for file transfers, watching movies, presentations etc.

Note: Espresso keeps your MacBook awake when the lid is closed only if your MacBook is connected to AC power.

Software does not work

This software didn’t keep my MacAir awake with the lid closed! As soon as I see a payment coming in I will put a stop payment on it.
Hopefully the developer will be able to fix it as right now it seems to be just some form of a scam.

Why didn’t I read the reviews first?

Yeah, like everyone else, this did not work. I was hoping I could use it with Airplay, but nope. As soon as I close my lid it goes right to sleep.

Such a waste of $5.

Lid closed

It didn’t keep it awake or connected to WIFI with lid closed. The app doesn’t help me utilize the air at business meetings or conferences. Disappointed this app didn’t address this.
