Features: - Right-click the menu bar icon to quickly activate. - Choose to activate with left-click instead in the Preferences. - Choose to activate at launch in the Preferences. - Allow the display to sleep in the Preferences. - Set the default duration in the Preferences, which is used when Lungo is activated by clicking the menu bar icon. - Custom keyboard shortcut to activate/deactivate Lungo. - Deactivate automatically when disconnecting the power adapter (opt-in). - Shortcuts support. - Control Lungo from scripts or the terminal. (See the website for more info) Important: Lungo will not prevent your computer from sleeping if you close the lid. This is a Mac App Store limitation. Lungo is also not able to prevent a scheduled sleep, enabled in the Battery system preferences. Support: Click the “Send Feedback…” menu item in the app.

    Software Reviews and Critisims

      Minimal and solid

      The little warm humidity animation makes my day everytime I click it. I use this taking notes in class and doing homework all the time. Always glad to support Sindre.

      Display won’t sleep if lungo is active

      I have set my displays to turn off after 10 minutes in Energy Saver. If I manually activate the screensaver and don’t deactivate Lungo then my displays never turn off. I’ve used Caffeine in the past and this was never an issue. I had reached out to Lungo Support over a month ago but never received a response.

      Solid keep-awake app

      Sindre has once again contributed a useful tool to the community. If you need something to do what this says it does - it does it well!

      Does the same as Caffeine, but nicer :)

      At the moment it looks to be on feature parity with Caffeine, but nice little touches such as retina icon and small animations make it look a bit nicer :)
