InsomniaX iconInsomniaX 2.1.3

No-frills and inconspicuous OS X application designed to work in the background to automatically prevent any portable Mac to go into sleep mode
InsomniaX has been created to provide OS X users to easily disable the sleep mode on any Mac laptop, a feature that was never made available by Apple.

InsomniaX is a GUI based wrapper for the Insomnia kernel extension and it will be available in your Mac's status bar once launched.

What's more, after installing it on your Mac, just click its menu bar icon and the menu will enable you to effortlessly disable both lid and idle sleep modes with only a mouse click.

As soon as you disable both sleeping modes on your portable Mac, it will no longer go to sleep when you will close the lid or when the system is idle.

Detailed instructions on how to repair or uninstall InsomniaX from your Mac are available on the InsomniaX homepage.

Warning: Using your Mac with closed lid can lead to serious system heat problems!
