StayAwake is a small application for Windows, which allows to temporarily disable the screensaver, sleep, hibernation and anything else that is launched when the computer is idle.
StayAwake can be useful if you want to watch a movie and you have to move the mouse every few minutes to avoid the screensaver. It can also help if you would like to disable the screensaver, but you can’t because of some sort of security policy.
- configurable, still very easy to use;
- lightweight (executable size is less than 50 KiB, memory usage at runtime is usually below 1 MiB);
How to use StayAwake
StayAwake displays a green monitor icon in the tray. Double click the icon to disable the screen saver. Double click it again to allow running the screen saver.
To enable or disable StayAwake you can also use the tray menu or a keyboard shortcut.
