Anti-Sleep App for your Mac.
Caffeinated prevents your Mac from going to sleep, dimming your screen or starting the screensaver.
Keeps your Mac awake.
Caffeinated was developed based on the fantastic but unfortunately deprecated tool Caffeine. Caffeinated is not only very convenient but also easy to use. Just one click on the icon in your menu bar to activate or deactivate the anti-sleep function.
Customizable to your needs
Caffeinated is also extremely flexible and offers many options and settings to fit your personal style.
Well optimized and lightweight
Caffeinated only sits in the menu bar of your Mac without the need of a dock icon. It is optimized for Retina Displays, Dark Mode and of course all modern systems including the new macOS Catalina.
Caffeinated comes with a simplistic approach and a minimal, easy-to-use interface. We want it to look and feel like a native App. We think, less is more.

Truely a great little app
“I have a Mac Mini that kept going to sleep even though it was set to never sleep (being used as a server). Nobody, including Apple, had an answer. I discovered this clean, simple app, and the problem was solved. Moreover, I made a suggestion for an added feature and the company instantly replied with enthusiasm. Great all the way around!”
