Caffeine for Mac

What is Caffeine on Mac?

The platform gives people a sense of security as the screen will not go to sleep unless the preferred amount of allotted time has ended. The Caffeine community does not need to go to the energy saver location inside of the ‘System Preferences’ on the Mac desktop to modify the settings.

This model is useful for people that would like to watch a movie or YouTube video as they do not need to tap the mouse or trackpad to wake up the screensaver. This works well to keep the Macbook active while performing download tasks, video conferences, etc.

The tiny program is lightweightand installs instantly due to the minimum amount of storage space that is required with the utility tool. The aesthetic appearance of the app is appealing. The using ratings and reviews on the program are positive and addictive in nature: similar to the qualities of a cup of coffee.

How do I add Caffeine to my Mac?

Upon the installation process, the platform will appear in the download folder in the Safari browser, which is located in the upper right corner within a downward-facing arrow inside a circle. Open the button and click on the magnifying glass alongside ‘Caffeine’ or double click on the text; this will bring the user to the ‘Downloads’ window.

Since macOS systems are relatively secure frameworks, there may be a notification that appears to inform people that the tool was retrieved from the internet. After confirming with the computer or laptop that Caffeine can be opened, the next measure to take may be to navigate to the ‘System Preferences’ resource. Locate and enter into ‘Security & Privacy’ in the upper section of the window.

Within ‘General’, there will be a segment in the lower part of the tab: ‘Allow apps downloaded from’. Choose the ‘Open Anyway’ option next to the Caffeine notice. Once the users allow the continuation of the installation to take place, they will be greeted by a welcome screen that can be considered as the setting page.

People can select and deselect options: ‘Automatically start Caffeine at login’, ‘Activate Caffeine at launch’, and ‘Show this message when starting Caffeine’. These options can be partially or completely selected and deselected. By having all of the possibilities marked, the tool will be presented and actuated in the upper right corner of the menu bar along with the welcome interface shown within the starting screen.

How do I keep my Mac screen awake?

Caffeine allows users to easily inhibit the screen from becoming dim or presenting an image by keeping their display lit. By clicking the coffee icon, the computer is set to stay on until another click turns the app off.

A visual representation of the platform being active is that there will be coffee and steam coming from inside of the mug. When the mug is empty, then the tool is not operating. Upon tapping the icon, the aesthetic alteration between the two appearances is instant. Clicking on the picture initiates the predetermined settings to begin or close.

To edit the preferences, right-click with the mouse or trackpad on the cup symbol. A concise menu will appear: ‘About Caffeine’, ‘Preferences…’, ‘Activate for’, and ‘Quit’. By choosing ‘About Caffeine’ a little window will be presented.

This interface will display the title, version, and a brief synopsis of the framework’s functionality. This area gives credit to the illustrators of both the application graphic and the menu bar emblem. A direct link to the Lighthead website is accessible here. The option ‘Preferences…’ in the succinct menu will bring up the welcome frame.

There are keyboard shortcuts provided in this segment along with the ability to modify the ‘Default duration’ time. A dropdown menu will provide options: ‘Indefinitely’ along with 5, 10, 15, and 30 minutes as well as 1, 2, and 5 hours. By choosing ‘Indefinitely’, people can prevent their Mac OS X equipment from ever dimming. Disabling this feature is recommended to preserve the machine’s battery.

Within the mini menu, the time periods are the same as the choices within the welcome section. The intervals are more accessible in the upper menu bar than in the ‘Preferences…’ section.

To change the allocated amount of time that the computer is awake for, right-click and navigate down to ‘Activate for’ to invoke the context menu with the different periods. If ‘Indefinitely’ is chosen, then be sure to turn that off when the preference is not needed anymore to preserve Mac’s life.

The best alternatives

Amphetamine, Coffee Buzz, Don’t Sleep, Insomnia X, KeepingYouAwake, Lungo, Theine 3, and the Caffeine alternatives for Linux and MicrosoftWindows operating systems are comparative software. A multitude of the aforementioned apps was inspired by Caffeine for Mac; the alternatives provide similar user experiences to the original version.

Due to the developers basing their new products on the concept of a completed one, there are advantageous features embedded in them: more options, better appearances, etc. Theine 3 is available on Mac operating systems and provides an interactive UX while remaining compact.

Simple sleep prevention utility

People love the Caffeine for Mac app to inhibit the desktop from dimming the display; this puts ease into the processes of doing professional presentations, reading recipes while cooking, monitoring progress on lengthy procedures, etc. Enabling and disabling the tech is intuitive: all that is required is a simple tap.

Specific updates to the software are sparingly given as the latest update is relatively the same as the first release. Regardless, the program has received great news and user reviews since the beginning.

Version 5.0.3

This update fixes a bug that caused display sleep to be disabled after waking your Mac from sleep.

Very useful utility - replacement for the older Caffeine app

I started using this app about a year ago as a replacement for Caffeine. I needed more control over when sleep prevention would start, stop, etc. This app does all that and more. My primary Mac is a laptop that I use for programming and remote database work. I find Amphetamine essential for keeping the laptop from sleeping and thus killing remote database connections, VPN connections, and so on. I could go into the Energy saver preferences and tell it to never sleep, etc., but I want to leave these higher level settings alone. Amphetamine allows me to override these whenever I need and with much more precision.

One feature that I am not able to fully use in version 3.0.3, is the app trigger. This is where you can create a rule that says "while 'the specified app' (Safari, etc.) is running, don't sleep". This works well for regular applications, but I was trying to have it see a daemon type process. Even with the option to have it show more than just interactive processes, it doesn't show these background type processes from non-Apple applications. This is really a minor nit pick though. I think that if the app showed you all the processes running on the computer, it would likely overwhelm the average non-technical type user.

Developer Response ,

Apple restricts what processes sandboxed apps can see, unfortunately. Otherwise, I’d happily implement a ridiculously long list of everything running on your Mac. ❤️

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

First off, I want to say that it's really stupid that Apple 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?

Developer Response ,

❤️ Contact support through the app. Happy to answer these questions.

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 Mac’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.

Summary

Whenever I know I'm going to be on the laptop for a school paper or a long work assignment, it gets really frustrating when my screen dims all the time but I don't want to have to change the display settings all the time. When I got this, my problem was solved! The screen stays lit for however long the icon is on. Plus the icon makes me think of drinking coffee, which psychologically works to wake me up. Love it!

Pros

This is a useful app that has a great design and is very easy to use.

Cons

Only thing is that it doesn't stop your mac from sleeping when you close it.

Summary

Caffeine is an incredibly useful app that does the job it's supposed to do. It's simple, effective, and best of all, it's free! The coffee cup in the menu bar is perfect and it's a great indicator of signifying whether the app is on or off. It's especially useful when you want to keep your computer running for overnight work.

None at all.
