InsomniaX, keep your Mac from falling asleep

InsomniaX is a small free utility that will prevent your mac from entering sleep mode, It looks a lot like Caffeine, that Pedro introduced you in another post. Even if you lower the lid of your laptop or it has been inactive for a long time, it will not keep it awake to continue what it was doing.

It can be useful if you plan to leave the laptop downloading torrents for example and thus avoid that the downloads stop if someone lowers the lid of the laptop.

It is also useful for using the laptop in clamshell mode, that is, connecting it to an external screen and keyboard and keeping the lid down … however, watch out in iBooks and other models that this mode is not supported as standard, make sure the temperature does not increase too much and it can cause damage to the screen, I have not tried it but if one day I do, I will be careful not to get too hot.
