Description:

Caffeine is a tiny program that puts an icon in the right side of your menu bar. Click it to prevent your Mac from automatically going to sleep, dimming the screen or starting screen savers. Click it again to go back. Right-click (or ⌘-click) the icon to show the menu.

Important: Caffeine lives in the MENU BAR, and this is where its state is indicated. App Store puts the Caffeine icon in the dock, but you can just remove it if you want to.

Install error occurred on OSX El Capitan - I tried installing this app on two differenct MacBook Pro’s and get the same error: Install error occurred. Does the app not work under OSX El Capitan?

Would have paid for this! - I rarely ever purchase apps, so admitting that I would have paid $0.99 for this app is actually saying a lot! I absolutely love this app! You don’t need the icon in your dock at the bottom of your screen, but it gives you easier access to preferences. From the desktop icon, you can set which desktops the app controls and whether it should start when you turn on your computer. From either the icon on your desktop or the icon in the bar at the top of your screen, you can set the duration of time it will run (incl. indefinitely) and you can turn the app on/off. Using the app does not change anything except that your computer will not go to sleep while it is turned on (the coffee cup icon at the top is filled). So it is perfect for late-night study sessions, watching videos, or reading online. I have been using this app for a busy week and have not encountered any problems yet. As simple as this app is, it is one of my favorites. :)

Install error occurred on OS X El Capitan - I have the same issue, just clean installed OS X El Capitan on my Macbook and I’m getting an error: Install error occurred. This is a really great app, would love to continue using it on El Capitan. Can this app be updated so that it can be downloaded to and installed on El Capitan? Thanks in advance for the help!

Need retina icon - Icon looks pixelated in the menu bar on my retina screen. Please update the icon as it is the only one in my menu bar that looks bad.
