This is a set-and-forget type of application. I have certain tasks on the computer which require that it stay awake, and the software automatically makes it happen, every time. It's my kind of productivity.

Update: I’ve been using this a while, and it continues to do exactly what I need. Developer keeps it current, listens to his customers. A good investment.

Great feature list, but...


There are a large number of applications that prevent your Mac from going to sleep. This one has some unique features, worth looking at, but… the main feature, preventing your Mac from going to sleep does not work very well.

I mostly ignore most of the applications features, except the tool bar icon color changes when an application preventing sleep is running, that is a warning for me when I click Shutdown,and start heading for the door. When it is a bold red color, (a clolor I selected), I know some application like Safari will inhibit shutdown against my wishes, a very nice faature on a Mac, since a browser like Safari can tell your Mac to ignore your shutdown request, against all logic.

But, far too frequently, I walk away from my Mac, to eat, for example, and when I know i have the application set to prevent sleep, I return to a login window. Worst of all, at the login window, my Mac overheats constantly, which strikes me as a bad design flaw on such a well made machine..

Fantastic! Simple yet Power-ful ;-)


PERFECT solution to my needs for keeping my big Mac Pro running smoothly -- awake when I need it to be, but sleeping when I don't to save on my power bill!

The ability to configure which apps and even UNIX processes can prevent system and/or display sleep is really powerful, but it's made simple enough that I figured it out on the first try. So useful I can't believe it's only $0.99!

And the name -- I LOL'ed. The Lion sleeps (in Yosemite?) Clever!
