Keep Your Mac Awake When Certain Apps Are Running

Video pros, don’t we all get a little frustrated when we leave while our machine crunches some transcoding and we return to find it only made it half way before our Mac decided to take a nap? Or if you’re like me, you just tell your machine to never sleep… Yeah, those days are over…

It’s a little like Caffeine, which I’ve mentioned before, that allows you to manually tell your machine not to sleep… but now you don’t even have to think about setting it if you’re using a new app called Wimoweh. Just tell Wimoweh that you’d never want your machine to sleep when you’re running Compressor or Adobe Media Encoder, simple. And yeah, I don’t know how to pronounce it’s name either, maybe it’s pronounced like the Lion King song “a weem oh wep“, but goofy name aside, it sure is a useful app!

Now, keep on creating!
