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?

Fixed Kernel Not Loaded error in Catalina. Go to your Mac Settings > Security & Privacy > General At the bottom of the screen you'll see 'Allow open application by Pavel.....' Boom!

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.
