Jiggler 1.6

Jiggler prevents your Mac from going to sleep mode.
1.7 (See all)

Jiggler is an application that prevents your computer from going to sleep mode or from displaying a screensaver when you're away from it. The program doesn't bring you an actual interface as it holds only a Preferences menu and a window from where you can set the amount of time you wish Jiggler blocks your PC from sleeping.

This Mac utility might prove to be of good use if you intend to leave your computer and let it complete a certain task while you're away. Jiggler will automatically move your mouse cursor so that your PC won't go to sleep mode and manage to finish the assigned task. You can configure the app to stop jiggling your mouse cursor after a defined period of time if necessary.

The application is very simple to handle as it offers easy-to-configure settings. Even without advanced computer skills you can get the results you require.

Another good aspect is that you can set the app to jiggle your mouse cursor on the screen while you're laying in your bed and listening to iTunes tracks.

Other than that, not much more can be said about Jiggler. It does exactly what is said on its homepage, uses minimum CPU resources, and is free to use for unlimited time.
