Description

Welcome to Amphetamine, the most awesome keep-awake app ever created for macOS. Amphetamine can keep your Mac, and optionally its display(s), awake through a super simple on/off switch, or automatically through easy-to-configure Triggers. Amphetamine is extremely powerful and includes advanced features for those who need them, yet remains intuitive and easy-to-use for those who don't need all of the bells and whistles.


=== Click to Keep Your Mac Awake ===

Quickly start a keep-awake session from Amphetamine's menu to keep your Mac awake.

• Indefinitely, for a specified amount of time, or until a specified time

During a keep-awake session, choose to allow or prevent:

• Screen saver activation
• System sleep when built-in display is closed
• Automated mouse cursor movement

=== Advanced Automation ===

No catch. Amphetamine is 100% free. It's a gift from me to you. Enjoy!

Unfassbar

Unfassbar, dass diese App kostenlos ist. Sie ist für die meisten nur ein kleiner Helfer, bietet aber auch sehr fortgeschrittene Features, mit denen der Mac z.B. wachgehalten werden kann, bis ein Download abgeschlossen ist. Andere Entwickler würden mindestens 0,99€ verlangen! Großes Lob von mir!

Unverzichtbar!

Nachdem ich den Vorgänger schon kannte, habe ich mir diese App geladen, die Gustafson aus Überzeugug ohne Werbung und ohne in-App Käufe weiterhin kostenlos anbietet.
Ich bin begeistert und möchte sie nicht mehr missen. Viele Möglichkeiten, alle sso einzustellen, wie man es braucht. Unterschiedliche Zeiten, automatisiertes Starten der App, auch ausgelöst durch events - alles drin. Danke!

Sehr nützlich, danke !

Das neue Dock-Icon ist sehr gelungen!

Version 4 konnte mich anfangs aufgrund der neuen Icons für die Menüleiste nicht überzeugen, inzwischen gefallen sie mir aber.

Zufällig habe ich entdeckt, dass man per Rechtsklick auf das Menüleisten-Icon die Modi wechseln kann, ohne das Dropdown-Menü zu nutzen. Sehr praktisch!
