Very nice. We needed this, since the change in sleep rules on Mountain Lion.

I would like to see the option to prevent sleep for a specific period of time. And also an icon change to show when Wimoweh is preventing sleep, as otherwise it is easy to forget this is happening.

Also it is not obvious that the "Never sleep when running" option can only be set when the application is actually running, rather than directly from a list of all applications. Not a problem once one realises this, but confusing at first.

I always liked this program, but am having some difficulties at the moment.

Possibly because of changes at the BBC, I had found downloads of radio programs all fail in 1.4.3 for the past few weeks.

And 1.5 will not get the feeds. It is still saying "updating program indexes" after an hour, so either I am doing something wrong or the program is.

Thanks, Steepleton, that seems to have worked. Dustybin, it did take a fair bit of time, though.

I found Caffeine extremely useful in Snow Leopard. Have never used Lion, but on Mountain Lion it does not seem to disable sleep, due to a change in the way the system handles sleep. Still, no harm in downloading it and trying.

I deleted my old iPod, which I have sold. I connected my new iPod, but nothing happened, not even a prompt. It's a third generation iPod Touch, running the latest OS. Is there are a reason it won't show up, is there just a glitch, or am I doing something wrong? Maybe I needed to restart my computer.

Needs to be run as an administrator. It does not even allow you to enter an administrator name and password. At least some of the features (tweaking preferences) would be useful on a user-by-user basis

In response to Miles.

As I said, some of the options are *user* preferences, and should be changeable by individual users without admin coming into it.

I agree that other options require admin privileges, but this does not necessarily require a user is logged in as admin, simply that an admin username and password is required. But there should be no way a non-admin user even knows the admin password unless, as in my case, only one person is using the machine and that person prefers to run routinely as a non-admin user.

When you say "I do not encourage non admin users to alter system files on my mac" my response is that it isn't a matter of encouraging or not, it should simply not be possible except in my situation, provided an admin name and password is asked for when needed.

The backup drive can get quite full, and there are items I want to delete (things I don't want to keep or have moved from one place to another so that I don't need them in their original location). Apparently this program will let one see what items on the backup have been deleted from the main drive. I reckon this would be very useful. Price is steep, though.

Having downloaded the trial, I find that the developers have been generous. You can't restore files from the trial version, but that's the only limitation. One can really easily find items that have been deleted, see what versions of a file one has, etc. Time Machine itself has to be used to remove unwanted items, though.

Given the functionality of the free version, I highly recommend this.
