Sleep No More
By Konstantin Pavlikhin
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
A tiny menu bar application, that prevents your Mac from sleeping for a set amount of time.
The app does not work as advertised
I've had at least 3 instances where the application fails to keep the computer awake. In all instances I configured iMovie to generate a movie which it stated would take 1 hour. I had configured the time duration to stay awake for 2 hours just to be safe.
I left the macbook pro plugged into the power cord to more than 4 hours. After returning to my macBook, I discovered the laptop had definitely gone to sleep and iMovie still reported 1 hour remaining. I looked at the meter for the sleep no more app & it showed 2 hours.
I was shocked & thought that I misconfigured something. So I repeated the test 2 more times as sure enough I had the same results.
I'm not sure if it's a conflict with iMovie, but it's a repeatable issue.
postpone sleep computer only option not available.
Cant seem to find support page, eitherway wanted to postpone sleep computer only and not postpone display sleep, however if i do that i cant prevent computer from sleeping. Please fix this bug Thanks. otherwise great app :)
Needs an indefinate option
24 hours is the longest that you can select it to keep your computer from sleeping. I travel and wtihout an indefinate selection it will sleep and thus disconnect all my nas drives.
