InsomniaX is a small utility that acts as a wrapper to the Insomnia kernel extension.

InsomniaX disables either lid and/or idle sleep on your MacBook - any MacBook - allowing you to play music through speakers even while it's closed! or simply just to quickly stop the system from going to sleep on idle

What's New

Version 2.1.3:

  • Insomnia is now r9 (Fixes issue where system will not sleep when unloaded with lid closed)
  • Fixed issue with CPU Safety menu item not working correctly
  • Insomnia will not load if it detects org.binaervarianz.driver.insomnia loaded
  • CPU Safety has been lowered to 80 degrees celsius
  • Status Icons are changed to use two different sections to better more...


  • OS X 10.7 or later
