[Solved] Prevent display going to sleep during the work day
Hi all, long time listener, first time poster!
I need to use 'Citrix Viewer' for work on my Mac (I work for banks in the UK) and i find that if my display goes to sleep Citrix Viewer disconnects, i have had this issue for years and have solved it by using Owly or Caffiene on my Mac to keep the display awake.
However, i regularly forget to disable it at the end of the day and sit back down at my desk on a Monday to find my screen has been burning away all weekend. I have tried to just select '8 hours' but the next day i forget to enable it and when i sit back down at my desk after making a coffee the display has gone to sleep and Citrix has disconnected.
So my question is… Do any of you know of a Owly or Caffiene solution that allows me to setup a schedule (e.g. 9-5, Mon-Fri) or a tool that can automatically enable and disable Owly on that schedule?
Any help much appreciated.
Check out Amphetamine by William Gustafson in the Mac App Store - free and pretty good config options.
Hi @kiwigraham, thanks that looks just the ticket! much appreciated.
ControlPlane might also be able to do what you want. A rule that triggers based on time, and an Action that keeps the monitor from going to sleep.
