AntiSleep Help

Staus Bar Item


The icon in the status bar displays the current state if you see "enabled" than AntiSleep activated and your Mac will not go to sleep, but if "enabled" than AntiSleep is not active and your Mac will soon be able to sleep.

Click Action

By default, by clicking on the icon in the status bar, a menu with settings opens. But in the settings there is the ability to set to this event the switching AntiSleep state. As a result, you get one click activation without having to go to the menu. In this case, the menu can be opened by double clicking or by pressing the right mouse button.

This mode prevents system sleep. When display will off then the system will continue to work. But when you close the lid of your Mac Book it will switches to sleep mode.

Prevent Display Sleep

This mode prevents system and display sleep. But when you close the lid of your Mac Book it will switches to sleep mode and the display turns off.

Prevent System Sleep when lid is closed

This mode prevents the system and display sleep when the Macbook lid is opened. When you close the Macbook lid display is turn off but the system is still working. In this mode, I recommend connecting the power adapter.
