Lungo prevents your computer 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.

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

Important: Lungo will not prevent your computer from sleeping if you close the lid. This is a Mac App Store limitation. Lungo is also not able to prevent a scheduled sleep, enabled in the battery system settings.

Support: Click the “Send Feedback” button in the app.

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.

Great Utility
