Customer Reviews

Does not distinguish between "display" and "computer" sleep

This app is great and more useful than Caffeine, since it can actually force the computer to go to sleep (provided that another application doesn't prevent it.) I just wish that it would also provide an option to keep the computer running and sleep the display only. I like to do my large file downloads at night. It would be great if my monitors would automatically shut off for me after x amount of time, but my downloads would keep going because the computer itself isn't set to sleep until y amount of time.

I am surprised this app isn't more popular

This app is wonderful. It's great to set a sleep timer for when you want to watch a movie or listen to a podcast but don't want your computer to go to sleep while you are watching OR you want it to turn off after a certain time if you are going to bed or something.

I use the app everyday and it's always worked great. Never had a problem with it! I'm glad I found this app because it is exactly what I need. Highly recommended!

Simple, elegant, does what it should.

SleepTime is a simple little app that makes it easy to set a countdown that automatically puts your Mac to sleep after a given amount of time. Preset times are given (or customize to minute/hour specification). Update adds an option to show remaining time in the taskbar. Developer is very responsive to user feature request/adjustment.
