Should I Sleep 1.8.4
Lightweight, discreet and user-friendly
Should I Sleep is a straightforward Mac OS X application that uses a mix of heuristic sensors that will make sure your computer does not go into the sleep mode. Should I Sleep can use as series of sensors such as face detection, camera motion, download monitor, processor usage and sound activity.
Every time your Mac’s display is about to dim, Should I Sleep starts all active sensors and monitors various activities for 3 seconds before allowing your screen to dim. Each of the covered sensors can be enabled or disabled and adjusted according to your needs and preferences.
Face Detection is one of the most effective sensors and manages to capture images from your Mac’s built-in camera in order to scan for eyes, nose and mouth. If one or more faces are detected, then sleep is prevented.
You can also personalize Should I Sleep and set the desired time period for the computer and/or your display to stay awake. All time periods and menu items are fully customizable. Hence, you can include the Camera Motion, Download Monitor, Processor Usage, External Display and Sound Activity in your list of sensors.
By default Should I Sleep comes with the Prevent by Time and Face detection sensors. However, you can use the in-app purchase system and buy one or all the above mentioned sensors.
To conclude, Should I Sleep is a practical and versatile application that promises to prevent your computer going to sleep by monitoring various sensors.
