Lights Out overview

Lights Out enables hot corners to put your Mac to sleep or keep it awake. Lights Out can set sleep on or off for individual applications. Lights Out cures Energy-Saver insomnia.

Many software packages, scanners, and peripherals can interfere with your Mac's normal sleeping patterns. Lights Out offers a secondary idle timer to put your Mac to sleep even when Energy Saver fails to do so.

Lights Out gives you easy control and status of system sleep right from its Dock icon. Simple to configure, and simple to use, Lights Out makes no harmful changes to your system. Launch it and quit it just like any normal app!

Lights Out is Energy Saver's Little Helper!

Features:

  • User definable hot spots for CPU sleep and never sleep.
  • Easily switch sleep on and off.
  • Set sleep on or off for individual applications.
  • Application based for easy installation and stability.
  • Simple to configure and use.

Your effort is appreciated as always, but how did you come up with $10 for the little app? If you offer it for $1 may be change to get more people buy it. There is a free app available that does this minus the timer and hotspots. http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/29778/pleasesleep PleaseSleep 2.3 I think $10 is over the top and I don't doubt many fellow Macupdate citizens would more than agree. Cheers.

I've installed lights out there's a few month ago but I don't want to keep it any more. After erase it, application and any prefs, it continue to work. I want to erase it permanently. The question is "HOW ?" (v 2.3.2).

Lights Out is working on my G5 now, and was very shortly after my last comment. Works like a charm, as always. The only feature I would like to see is a "sleep" "force sleep" choice. In other words, a check box that enables the Mac to be put to sleep if idle entirely, but to remain awake if I have EyeTV open. If I forget to make it "inactive", it just goes to sleep...very annoying. Other than that...
