NMS 2.3b3 reviewDownload
A faceless application that forces system sleep at a set idle time or on Screen Saver activation.
A faceless application that forces system sleep at a set idle time or on Screen Saver activation. Can follow Energy Saver settings. For me this solves the recurring problem of an invariably corrupt power manager preventing automatic sleep and the frequent dead batteries that result. Simple as this solution is it has worked great for me. My laptop ALWAYS sleeps.
This version improves the configuration utility to allow more convenient use of NMS independently of the Energy Saver preferences (Fully Autonomous mode) including setting source specific time-to-sleep values.
Beta 2 improves the NMS Monitor Utility, and Beta 3 fixes some minor display errors.
Some benign errors may exist in the Sleep Assist config utility but they do not involve the background process.
This version also has some limited testing on the Mactels and seems to work well.
