Wimoweh

1.1.66
02 November 2019

Menu item helps control your Mac's sleep (beta).

Overview

Wimoweh is a menu-bar application that allows you to have better control over how your Mac sleeps.

Features
  • Shows which apps are preventing your Mac from sleeping and why.
  • Stay awake based on average CPU usage over time.
  • Stay awake based on available services on your local network
  • Set-up a countdown to keep your Mac awake for a certain amount of time
  • Allows you to always stay awake when certain applications are running and automatically sleep when they've finished. This is great for apps that OS X seems to 'ignore' even though they're working or if you're waiting for a lengthy job to finish and want the Mac to sleep afterwards.
  • And of course, you can just keep your Mac awake indefinitely.

This seems like a really nice app, but is there anyway to customize the dashboard icon so it's not a neon green? I personally prefer all of my dashboard icons to be black. Your icon is cool enough that it doesn't need color, in my humble opinion. :)

@iMiNiMaL - Can you expand on that? Perhaps there is a particular feature Amphetamine has you'd like to see included?

Finally I found a worthy successor to the Caffeine. This application is simple and lightweight yet feature-full! Loved It!

The function that can appoint outside application targeted for sleep is wonderful. The time designation is possible, too.

For a simple variable-time menubar sleep control try Fiplab's Owly- Sleep Prevention. I have Caffeine and Wimoweh, and good as they both are, one fling w. Owly and I was a happy man. Best of all, it's fro-fra-free. Find at the App Store.

The menubar icons are kind of cute, I guess – but absolutely hard to tell apart! There seem to be two kind of animal faces (?), one with open and one with closed eyes – problem is, those open/closed eyes in that animal face icons are only 2x2 pixels (!) – I can't see any difference on my 27" display (2560 x 1440 Pixel) at all, even if I use Mac OS X's zoom function (without antialiasing)! You should really consider new menubar icons – and they really don't have to look like cute little animal faces, just keep them simple and easy to distinguish.

I've long used caffeine as it does exactly as much as I need. However, Wimoweh has a lot more options and control, very well implemented and a responsive developer. I do miss my cup of coffee full/empty icon though!!!

Goddammit! Can't you (developer) stop posting a daily release and rather impelement and test your app up to a certain properly working state? it is very annoying if an app updates every day. it feels like its super alpha. stop doing it. (drop box does that too, its so annoying)

ps you use macupdate as beta tester platform. i dont think its meant to be that… or what do other users here think about this?

@george6, Unless I'm missing something obvious it seems to me that these releases are clearly marked as BETA versions both here on MacUpdate and on the serialangels.co.uk website which carries the following advice on the download page: 'This is a BETA test version of xxxx – you only want to download this version if you’re interested in helping test new features.' You're right in saying the release tempo is higher for these BETA releases but saying they are daily is stretching it. In any case MacUpdate support a BETA channel on their website in order to help developers and users participate in the BETA process; a feature missing on MAS and something which I personally think they should be applauded for. The downloading of BETA versions is, of course, optional. I'll admit that the cut and thrust of the test process is not for everyone so might I suggest that if you find these releases or the idea of BETA testing objectionable you stick with the stable branch? If you've got any further questions please e-mail me at feedback@serialangels.co.uk

thats why i added the question to other users. i personally dont think macupdate as beta testing platform. the developers should do this in other ways. like this mu gets flooded with beta releases which makes mu confusing and less easy to use. i personally would only allow proper stable releases on mu, it is like library of software. i dont need to see half written or constantly changing books.

@george6, Two points: 1. You've rated this version of Wimoweh with 3 stars - I'm assuming you've overcome your apparent aversion to BETA software and used this version of Wimoweh yet I've received no feedback to explain that rating. I reiterate, if you're having specific problems with this software please e-mail me at feedback@serialangels.co.uk 2. At the risk of extending either your slightly faulty analogy or this conversation beyond the point of usefulness - if you've got a problem with the MacUdpate site you need to talk to the Librarian and stop scribbling in the books.

To be blunt, what's your major malfunction? 1/ MacUpdate has posted links to the beta AND the stable software. 2/ You don't like developers making new features and beta-testing? Stop downloading software now. That's all I have to say.

Well, he's certainly in mixed company as Gargle uses MU as a beta test bed for all its perpetually-in-beta apps, as well as a few others. IMNSHO it doesn't matter. Some visitors here love to get a crack at beta versions while others, not so much. As long as the article is marked "beta" then it's doing no harm. Move along to the next item...

I repeatedly tried to open it but nothing happened. No menu-bar icon and no window appears.
