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.
