I can't install this plugin on OS 12 Monterey.. I'm trying to install the plugin cause my issue is: I have a new ssd in my MBP early 2015, now when it goes in sleep mode, the mac is not able to wake up anymore and a (?) folder icon appears, thus I've to force the switch off (holding Power button). Anyone as a suggestion to fix this? Or to make it work properly or to prevent sleep mode. Tnx

So Im having a issue with one my MBP's. I have one that 2012 "Sierra" (Which no sleep works flawlessly.) - thanks = ) However I have a map that's a late 2015 and I have downloaded it, I closed the top and it works for 3 secs. and cuts off. Reopen the Mac and it backs on like nothing happen. Which this is my repetitive problems. Any advice would be great!

I have tried to download No sleep many times but a message keeps popping up saying "No sleep kernel extension not downloaded". What do I do to get this app working?

If Nosleep won't startup, put Nosleep into logon (user/groups). This way it will startup.

I haven't looked at NoSleep in a while, so I just d/l'ed the latest version to see if its critical flaw has been fixed, and I"ve found that it hasn't, thus a one star review for an otherwise five star utility. NoSleep is the ONLY app/utility I"ve ever run across that allows you to set a pref and then unilaterally changes it with no warning, and in this instance, it could cost you your Mac. Try this: While operating your laptop on AC power, set your NoSleep pref pane for "Never Sleep on AC Adaptor;" now toggle your menu bar icon off, then on; now check your pref pane, and you'll find that along with "Never Sleep on AC Adaptor," "Never sleep on Battery" has been toggled on too. Congratulations! Your Mac is now ready to fry if you put it into your knapsack without realizing what you've done. Sorry, but no matter that the developer thinks that this is what people want, it is 100% TOTALLY INEXCUSABLE for an app/utility to unilaterally override a pref that has been set by a user with no notification.

I really like NoSleep, but I am unable to figure out how to access it's preferences. The only functionality I have it to turn it on and off via the menu bar. It is not appearing in sys prefs, and I cannot get a drop down menu from the menu bar icon. Would someone let me know what I am missing.

I've been using NoSleep for the past six weeks or so, MacBookAir, Early 2015, with macOS Sierra 10.12.6. NoSleep is at 1.4 - and I've updated at least once since I've downloaded the app. I am a mobile user - I am often away with only my MacBook Air and when I come home I like to "dock" my MacBook Air with a KRADL Air mount - which closes the display lid my Air. I typically dock my Air as follows: - Close the MacBook Air without NoSleep running (the Air goes to sleep) - Plug in the MacBook Air - MacBook Air awakes, utilizes external display (via DisplayPort), USB Apple Keyboard and Magic Trackpad via Bluetooth - Start NoSleep and ensure it's enabled - Disable NoSleep by clicking on the ZZ's and uncheck Enable - Re-enable NoSleep by clicking on the ZZ's and check Enable After I do this it works pretty much everytime. I'm not sure why I have to disable then re-enable NoSleep after initiating it, but if I don't my MacBook Air goes to sleep. I have had one issue that caused me to hard reboot the Air - but it only happened once, not sure it was NoSleep's fault. I believe it's best for my battery to use it a few hours a day and when I'm docked I can run my machine unplugged. Thoughts?
