    So easy to use


    Icon is non-retina

    I love this. I wonder how they will compare against Amphetamine.

Have been using this app for years, yet I still find myself recommending it to someone about every two weeks when their screen goes to sleep during a presentation. I'm most impressed by the staying power of this application, and with no new features. Over all my devices, this might only be matched by instagram, another product that has only evolved in VERY small increments since its launch years ago, yet I still use it daily.

Not new but new to me. Nice simple Mac application to let you toggle sleep mode on/off. Never let your Mac dim during a presentation again!

@hunterwalk thanks for the reminder. I used to have this installed on my Mac before I reformatted.

+1 for a really nice icon and toggle functionality. Empty cup = off. Steamy cup = active. p.s. nice comments @rrhoover @ZackShapiro @jonnotie

This is the first app I install on a new computer. So simple, yet so handy.
