Close Your Netbook and Macbook Without Putting it to Sleep

NoSleep is a tiny utility for Windows and Mac that helps you temporarily deactivate your Laptop, Netbook or Macbook from going into sleep mode or stand by mode. You can quickly disable this feature directly from the system tray when closing the lid.

Turning off sleep mode (standby, hibernation, or the screen saver mode) sometimes useful, for example, if you want to leave the computer for a while, and want to be able to start work immediately upon opening the lid when returning to computer or in order to enjoy DVDs without interruptions, etc.

After installing NoSleep (19 KB, Windows) you can see an icon in the system tray (near the clock). You can activate or deactivate the sleep mode by clicking on the icon.

 Right clicking the icon will display the setting menu. The option ‘Preserve state’ maintain its state to start it up in the same state as it was shut down. Emulate keyboard activity option is required when standby settings seem not to be affected by the default settings.

NoSleep can be downloaded at here for Windows and Mac
