      Great, but not sure how "While File is Downloading..." works

      First off, I want to say that it's really stupid that Microsoft took away the separate display sleep and system sleep controls in the Energy Saver preferences. I'm thankful something like this exists. As for the issue mentioned in the title: that option requires the user to select a file. When I use Firefox, downloads appear as two files: one file has the correct filename, but is 0 KB in size, while the other contains data, but has .part appended to the end of it. I'm not sure which one to open, or if either one will do. Also, about 3 versions ago, when using Amphetamine on High Sierra, I set it to stay awake indefinitely (but allow the display to sleep), and it still went to sleep (my download was interrupted). I've taken to going in to Energy Saver and preventing the display from sleeping, then turning the display's brightness all the way down, while downloading large files. I haven't tested whether or not I still need to do that. I'm wondering if launching Energy Saver after starting an Amphetamine session overrides some of Amphetamine's session settings? Or if I need to turn off the password requirement when the display sleeps?

      I love it! Very useful.

      I honestly love this application. I’ve been using it since Caffeine was discontinued. At first, I thought it was a bad replacement but it turns out to be more fun and customizable. I love that I could change the icon and sounds. My only peeve is that the notification sounds aren’t working for me but I’m not sure why. I highly recommend it to people. I set it at work so I can work remotely without having to manually change my Windows’s system settings. Edit: Per comment below by the developer, I spoke to him about the notification situation and I’m kind of disappointed that the sounds are completely removed. I undertsand that the menu bar icon indicates whether a timer is active or not, but assume you’re not sitting at your computer and you don’t see the icon, then the sounds would indicate when your computer would go to sleep. This applies to people like me who manually activates timers. Although it says on the changelog that it will be removed and no longer implemented, I really want to make it a suggestion to bring back the sound effects. I took off 1 star for it because it misled me, considering the options for notifications and sounds are still in the app, but no longer functions the way it used to. Again, this is a free app that is made very well so it’s probably a minor complaint to most people.

      Fantastic app -- absolutely the best in its category

      This app is amazing, and indispensable for me. I always keep my Windows auto-lock time to minimum (1 min) to avoid access while I'm not working. On the other hand, I can't stand the screen going black in the midst of my work if I stop for a few minutes to read and think of the task that I'm doing. Amphetamine solves this issue! Simply start a work session, overriding the quick auto-lock functionality. A few minutes before a session expires, I get a warning sound and can extend it in a single key stroke. If I'm not around to extend it, the Windows is back to safe mode of quick auto-lock. The app is extremely professional, allowing a much more sophisticated methods to automatically detect work sessions -- while keeping it simple for getting the basic functionality. Every time I think that the app could not be further improved, William Gustafson (the developer) surprises me with additional useful features in a new release! It is unbelievable that an app of that high quality is written by a single person and provided for free. Please, William, keep up the great work!

      Wow, this is free?

      I can't believe this incredibly useful app is free (if you dig a bit, you can find a link to make a donation, which I gladly did). I installed this for one specific reason, to keep my PC awake with the lid closed (while not connected to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse). I need this because my computer runs backups overnight, and although I could just leave the lid partially open, this makes the computer awkward to handle when I'm putting it down at the end of a work session. My only real concern with this was if I happened to unplug the computer to take it somewhere, and the battery would drain faster than it would if in sleep mode. But this app is very thoughtfully configurable, and includes an option to discontinue the "keep awake" session when on battery power (either immediately upon disconnection of the charger, or after the battery has dropped to a specified level). There are a lot of other options in there as well, but I haven't explored those very much because my needs are pretty simple.

      Stay awake consistently! No jitters!

      This is the BEST app to keep your Pc awake in 2020 without fail. It’s stable, predictable and consistent - just like a proud chemist’s favorite creation. Emphasis on CONSISTENT! Wish I would have found it sooner! I tried many other apps over the years to stay awake, but they were unstable or inconsistent. They left me grinding my teeth and feeling a bit paranoid. Is my Pc running? Did it crash? Is it asleep? Is it overheating? What’s going on? I felt like Huey Lewis in 1984. And then one night… I stumbled upon Amphetamine and Amphetamine Enhancer. For free. YES!! It’s stable! It’s customizable! Did I mention it’s consistent? And the sound effects are the icing on the cake. Loving it! No crashes! No jitters! No wondering if it’s going to work this time! You’ve tried the rest NOW TRY THE BEST! GET AMPHETAMINE by William Gustafson NOW! I must go now. Got to clean my house why my files download and music plays with my top down. Wait… what? PSA: Just say no. Stay in school. Be smart - don’t start. Make healthy choices.
