  9. Keep Screen On

    • FreeProprietary
    • Android

    Annoyed by your screen turning off when you're using certain apps? Don't change your display settings and waste battery by keeping the screen on when the home screen is open. Just install this app and tell it which apps you want to keep the screen on for.

  10. InsomniaX

    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.
