What is Caffeine for Windows?
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.

This has got to be the worst user experience possible when knowing it's OS X original counterpart.
Try Sleep Preventer instead. Perfect.
Sometimes it doesn't work on Windows 10 (November 2019 Update). Computer still goes to sleep while Caffeine is active.
Very unfriendly with Git Bash and other console windows, because every few seconds inserts "~" character.
Yes, the default method of Caffeine sending a virtual F15 key press can impact some applications. Besides the Minnty terminal (the terminal Git Bash is using), Emacs as well will indicate receiving the F15 key. However Caffeine provides a solution to this i.e. use the -stes commandline parameter.

Caffeine just does not work reliably for me under Windows 10. Sometimes it prevents my PC from locking; other times, it does not. I've tried the various options, including -useshift, but nothing helps.
Ginseng is the only alternative I've found that works 100%, but it is absolutely feature devoid.
BECAUSE IT PREVENT FROM SLEEPING. WITHOUT USING SETTING OF WINDOWS
