    1. Don't Sleep is a small portable program to prevent system shutdown, Standby, Hibernate, Turn Off and Restart.
    2. If you have problems with your PC locking or going to sleep, caffeine will keep it awake. It works by simulating a keypress once every 59 seconds, so your machine thinks you're still working at the keyboard, so won't lock the screen or activate the screensaver.

    3. Econap helps you to save energy and increase your comfort. Before your pc enters the sleep mode, Econap will check if something important is running on your system. If so, it will wait until your download, backups, videos etc. are finished. Finally your pc will go to sleep.

      NoDoze simulates keyboard/mouse activity to keep the screensaver from activating. Its activity depends on currently running programs. You can use regular expressions or Windows wildcards to choose when the screensaver is deactivated.
    4. Coffee will keep your computer wide awake while your network is active or a program. Coffee prevents standby when your traffic speed on a selected network adapter is above the user configurable threshold or specific software selected.

    6. Simulates activity (=> disables screensaver and powersaving) while running programms (any .exe) from a choosen directory. Main purpose is to choose the steam directory to disable monitor powersaving while running steam games.
    7. When it's not possible to change the screensaver settings in your Windows environment, then it's almost impossible to show things on your screen for a longer period without activating the screensaver.

    8. MoccaFaux can be used to prevent the activation of screen savers and power-saving modes when certain conditions are met. It was inspired by caffeine, but is much more flexible.
