Description

Lungo prevents your Mac from falling asleep and your screen from dimming.

This can be useful when:
- Doing a presentation at work.
- Watching YouTube videos in non-fullscreen mode.
- Cooking and having the recipe open on your computer.
- Reading a long article without scrolling.
- Using the screen to view live stats.
- Monitoring progress on a long-running task.

Features:
- Right-click the menu bar icon to quickly activate.
- Choose to activate with left-click instead in the Preferences.
- Choose to activate at launch in the Preferences.
- Allow the display to sleep in the Preferences.
- Set the default duration in the Preferences, which is used when Lungo is activated by clicking the menu bar icon.
- Custom keyboard shortcut to activate/deactivate Lungo. (macOS 10.15 or later only)
- Deactivate automatically when disconnecting the power adapter (opt-in).
- Control Lungo from scripts or the terminal. (See the website for more info)

Important: Lungo will not prevent your Mac from sleeping if you close the lid. This is a Mac App Store limitation.

Great app, does exactly what it says

This app does exactly what it says, and what I wanted, a way to quickly prevent my Mac from going into sleep mode for a certain duration of time. I wanted something like Caffeine, but more up-to-date and this fit the bill. No issues, happy user.

Minimal and solid

The little warm humidity animation makes my day everytime I click it. I use this taking notes in class and doing homework all the time. Always glad to support Sindre.

Display won’t sleep if lungo is active

I have set my displays to turn off after 10 minutes in Energy Saver. If I manually activate the screensaver and don’t deactivate Lungo then my displays never turn off. I’ve used Caffeine in the past and this was never an issue. I had reached out to Lungo Support over a month ago but never received a response.

Developer Response ,

I seemed to have missed your email before. Sorry about that. Lungo now has a preference to let the display sleep.

It would be amazing if you would be willing to update your review. 🙏
