Utility that keeps local disks from sleeping.

Overview

Disksomnia periodically writes a file to keep any local disk awake, including those that stubbornly ignore Energy Saver preferences.

Waiting for sleeping disks to wake up can be a frustrating experience for DJs, video/audio editors, musicians, and motion graphics designers who frequently work with media files located on multiple disks.

Version 4.0.3:
  • Fixed menu bar icon not showing on OS X 10.7 Lion

Might be interested at 1.99 but not at 9.99. Looking at other alternatives/options. Don't have a problem paying a small fee to dev but I believe 9.99 for this is too expensive.

OK, if all you have to contribute to a review is "it's too expense" you have nothing to contribute. Developers set their prices as the market dictates, sometimes that means charming more than you are willing to pay. The iOS app stores $.99 apps are only workable due to the overwhelming volume of iOS users over Mac OS users, those prices are not sustainable for desktop apps simply because of the size of the market.

also requires Final Cut (Express or Pro) Question: could this be modified so that it would serve the function of keeping attached drives from sleeping without the need for running/install of Final Cut? Thereby making it more generic, for folks who would like external drives to stay awake but have not Final Cut?

Apologies if you wasted your time with this. Yesterday I received the developer's newsletter announcing this new freeware, read it, and went to the developer site. It was not made sufficiently clear to me in the newsletter nor the developer site that this software required FCP or FC Express. The description and requirements have now been changed, thanks for the heads-up.

Please note that these comments from 2008 are now out of date. Disksomnia 3.0 has been completely rewritten and no longer requires or only works with Final Cut Pro/Express.
