Astorga had trouble on 06 Jun 2008
By the way, it also flips my macbook's camera on and off, as if I had closed and opened the lid every few minutes.
Please help me get rid of your software.

Astorga had trouble on 04 Jun 2008
Hello, developers of insomniax. I've tried your software, because in my old PC I liked to close the lid and leave downloads active, as well as other internet software that refreshes constantly, and Mr. Jobs hasn't taken time as of yet for the groundbreaking research of this feature.
So I downloaded InsomniaX, which I thought was as a possible solution. Unfortunately (and I appreciate your effort), it still cut the internet in My Leppard-based Macbook (Mac OS X 10.5.3 - 9D34 - Kernel Version: Darwin 9.3.0), and so I went on to remove it.
... and I had the usual "absence of uninstall"problem: I made sure I disabled "sleepless mode" (or whatever), then quit the program. Then I removed the .app from the App folder, and looked for the kext, which was in the /InsomniaX folder in ~/Library/Application Support, I think. I moved the folder with the kext to a backup corner of my HD, as I did the app, and there I was.
Surprise, surprise: As I found out the next morning, whenever my computer goes (lid open) to sleep, as normal, prior-to-insomniax energy saver instructions tell him to, I cannot wake him up anymore by sliding my finger across the trackpad, or by just pressing any key!
I have to actually close the lid and open it again. It's not only wildly annoying, but also shortens the life of the lid mechanism.
Forgive me if I'm somewhat disappointed that the program wrote a kext on my mac-equivalent-"registry" by my merely double-clicking the app, without any prior warning. (It just gave me an "I did it" acknowledge screen.)

Please instruct me on how to revert this picture, since the mere removal of the folder and the kext didn't do any good. Since InsomniaX has likely written something on my "registry", I urgently need to know what to do in my specific case. I have no Terminal experience whatsoever and need your guidance.

Yours urgently,
[Version 1.3.3]
