KeepingYouAwake vs Caffeine for Mac opinions
It's simple and Open Source, it also works fine.
Has all the features of Caffeine but includes auto-update and is open-source!
Im new to it all and it was recommended to me.
Coffee Buzz is the easiest and safest display-sleep preventer available, with simple operation and exclusive Safety Auto-Shutoff feature. Keeping your Mac awake (and letting it sleep again) is as simple as a click!.
It always has been a missing feature: disabling the sleep mode on a Apple Laptop. Who does not want to use it as a big juke-box or go warwalking. The best looking server ever, especially at about one inch height.
The software is discontinued from July 2017 http://semaja2.net/2017/06/thank-you-and-farewell-for-now/
InsomniaX vs Caffeine for Mac opinions
I'm using insomniax to prevent my macbook pro from going idle when i close the lid. This means that I can use it to play music (e.g. iTunes or Spotify) and use my iPhone to remote control it.
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.
Caffeinated by Yugen UG vs Caffeine for Mac opinions
Very user friendly, great settings, all the necessary features. Runs seamlessly.
NoSleep makes closing of your MacBook lid possible without going to a sleep mode. Now you shouldn't have to plug your mouse and monitor to stay computer awake - just activate it by clicking a menu bar icon or check a tick in the System Preferences and continue downloading...Discontinued
