*** Caffeinated prevents your mac from going to sleep, dimming your screen or starting the screensaver.

Your screen gets dark when you don't want it? Then Caffeinated is the perfect tool for you. Caffeinated was developed based on the helpful tool Caffeine. Caffeinated brings back the classical features on your Mac. Caffeinated is not only very convenient but also easy to use. Just one click on the icon in your menu bar to prevent your screen from going to sleep. Within the menu you find all the important timer options and settings.

I always use Caffeinated, when ...
... hosting a presentation at work
... watching videos at home
... reading books on my mac
... chatting with my friends

What’s New

Version 1.17

Hello everyone! Since many of you reached out to us wishing for the menu bar icon / coffee cup to be slightly smaller, we reduced the size accordingly.

We are aware of the issue of the dropdown menu not showing up when using external monitors on macOS Catalina. This is a system related issue and we are already in contact with Apple. We are very sorry for the inconvinience. We'll provide a fix as soon as possible.

By the way, check out Caffeinated's new website Along with a helpful FAQ we've also written a step-by-step guide on how to keep your MacBook awake with closed lid. In this guide we also explain why this isn't a built-in-feature of Caffeinated.

As always, thanks for writing us. It really means a lot to us! More updates and features are coming soon!

Dobrze, że jest język polski, ale tłumaczenie jest z dupy - z jakiegoś kiepskiego translatora. Poprawcie to.
