Will it keep a Macbook awake while the lid is closed?

Version 1.2

I would expect that it should work if you have an external monitor, keyboard and mouse connected to your MacBook. Without those three items connected, the MacBook will sleep.


NoSleep (AKA ZZ No Sleep) lets you to Close MBP Lid.


Replying to Sleek:
Thanks, but I tried NoSleep, and it wouldn't work for me. I kept getting the kernel extension error that was supposed to have been fixed.

How is this different from Caffeine.app (except for the price)? I see no reason to use this instead of it.

Version 1.2

CaffeinateMe allows the user to specify exactly how many minutes or hours the system should stay awake (it's not based on a drop down with a set number of values). It also shows the number of remaining minutes in the dock and uses the notification center to alert the user when the time is up.


CaffeinateMe 1.3 now offers the ability to caffeinate individual apps while they're running.
