No Spin for Mac2.4

08 August 2007

Prevents problematic disk spindowns.

What is No Spin for Mac

No Spin prevents problematic disk spindowns. Open the app and voila! After it is opened, you can set which disks you wish to be affected and at what interval you want this program to run. For example, set it at 50 if your disks spindown after 60 seconds. When you quit the app it is turned off.

This trial is good for 15 launches for returning users, 30 for newbies. After that if you buy from http://software.electriceelprod.com and receive an updater that unlocks it forever.

New: Fixed some language issues in the program.

What's new in No Spin

Version 2.4:
  • Interface tweak.

I have re-worked this app. It is no longer a launch daemon (too problematic). It is now self contained, and way more reliable. Re-download the trial and any leftovers from old version will be removed from your system.

Check this out. Added: Keychain access support. Not exactly bug free but pretty cool. I can't prevent you from entering the wrong password. However, if you want to add this app to your login items, it won't be stalled with that pesky authentication dialog box.

I fixed a bug that prevented the daemon from uninstalling when the app is quit. Sorry, to all, but you might want to re-download.

Okay, but turn it on and off when you need it, without knowing anything about programming. Also, specify which disks and when you want it to run. It would be quite annoying if you had to do that everytime you wanted to turn it on or off. Also, what the heck!, I don't try to prevent you from making money. What do you think you are doing? I will keep an eye out for your programs.

Simple use a cronjob to prevent disk spindown: every minute >> touch file .nosleep that works for free.
