InsomniaX is a power management tool for Mac OS X computers. It allows you to restrict the default behavior of your Macbook when you close its lid. By default, your Macbook will go to sleep when you close the lid, to protect the computer from overheating. InsomniaX allows you to keep your computer active when the lid is closed.
I remember using InsomniaX with my first Macbook, a 13-inch with Leopard. When I made the switch to Snow Leopard and a Macbook Pro, the application stopped working. Now that I give it another try, I am glad to see that it is working again.
InsomniaX will put an icon on the menu bar at the top of your screen. This icon will show whether InsomniaX is active or not. From the menu that pops up when you click this icon, you can either activate or deactivate the application, or put your monitors to sleep or sleep the system. There are other settings that you can activate from the "Preferences" sub-menu, like hotkey usage, load on AC power, battery or start, and to enable sounds.
All in all, InsomniaX seems to be working now, and it is a nice tool to have when you are moving your laptop around and don't want to put it to sleep, for example, or to save battery power when you are on the go or running a server of some kind.
