Lights Out enables hot corners to put your Mac to sleep or keep it awake. Lights Out can set sleep on or off for individual applications. Lights Out cures Energy-Saver insomnia.

Lights Out gives you easy control and status of system sleep right from its Dock icon. Simple to configure, and simple to use, Lights Out makes no harmful changes to your system. Launch it and quit it just like any normal more...

At the time I wrote this there was no screenshot provided. Now that there is one, I retract my previous snarkiness. :)

I've installed lights out there's a few month ago but I don't want to keep it any more. After erase it, application and any prefs, it continue to work. I want to erase it permanently. The question is "HOW ?" (v 2.3.2).

Lights Out is working on my G5 now, and was very shortly after my last comment. Works like a charm, as always.

The only feature I would like to see is a "sleep" "force sleep" choice. In other words, a check box that enables the Mac to be put to sleep if idle entirely, but to remain awake if I have EyeTV open.
If I forget to make it "inactive", it just goes to sleep...very annoying.

Other than that...

Worked well on my G4, 10.3 (something)- 10.4 (something), but doesn't seem to work at all on my G5 (10.4.5).

My G5 was sleeping and acting normally before 10.4.5, but now, with or without Lights Out, it won't sleep unless I make it sleep.

No new USB, and what's plugged in (in a Belkin hub) I need on a daily.

Dunno...

Hello

Will software like this help with the "deep sleep" issues that installing 3rd parties USB 2.0 cards sometimes cause?
Thanks!

Anyone else having this program stalling? It just becomes completely unresponsive. I've tried trashing the prefs, but it actually seemed to make it worse.

Yup, it happens to me. No idea why or how to solve it. Seems a serious issue.

This application just works. My G4 desktop would not reliably go to sleep and would sometimes run for hours on end with the disk spinning all the time due to....well, who knows? No amount of tinkering or operating system upgrading made any difference.

No more. Now, with Lights Out running in the background, sleep is just a few minutes away. It never missess a beat.

My Mac won't go to sleep automatically despite my Energy Saver settings. It's probably due to my USB-bus powered scanner that interferes... Thanks to this little app, the Mac goes fast asleep automatically again, and I don't have to worry about forgetting to put it to sleep.
