Ratings and Reviews
Does what it says
It does exactly what it says -- prevents the Mac from going to sleep.
In my context, I had a KVM switch hooked to the mac. Before I go the app, I had a problem that background processes would stop working as the Mac went to sleep. App prevents the sleep, allowing processes to continue.
Only 4 stars because it doesn't prevent the mac from stopping sending video -- so when I do come back, it takes several seconds for the video to kick back in, which will also cause some strange states within the window manager. You also need to disable password protection on lock screen, but that works fine for my current usage.
Laptop Awake with Lid CLOSED
This was the only utility/app I found that kept my laptop awake when I closed the lid - important for keeping huge and slow downloads active!

Works...with a cavaet. - UPDATE
UPDATE - New version fixed the lid sleep issue.
I downloaded this on two of my MacBook Pros, both running Mojave. It works on one but not the other for Lid Sleep. I suspect the reviewer seaiamthat experienced the same issue.
Here is the reason, I suspect. The computer this app doesn't prevent lid sleep from working has my companies security policy. If your computer came from your job, it likely has a security policy applied preventing you from changing many settings, like sleep, password removal or never sleep.
The app works as advertised on my personal Macbook Pro. I don;t believe any app can override the security policies, if applied to your system.
Developer Response ,
Please check out the new update (version 1.4). New update makes this app work as expected. Please update the review if it solves your problem.
