Caffeinated keeps your PC awake

I use an excellent if simple program called Caffeine on OS X. Its only purpose is to temporarily prevent your computer from automically sleeping, or displaying the screensaver. A similar program called Insomnia is available for Windows, but I dislike its UI.

So, I built Caffeinated. It’s a port of Caffeine that runs on Windows. The UI is straight-up lifted from Caffeine, and the entire program is pretty much just a usable wrapper around the SetThreadExecutionState function from the Windows API.

Despite its simplicity, I find it useful, and maybe you will too. Read more about it, or download it now.
