Lungo prevents your Mac from falling asleep and your screen from dimming.
This can be useful when:
- Doing a presentation at work
- Watching YouTube videos in nonfullscreen mode
- Cooking and having the recipe open on your computer
- Reading a long article without scrolling
- Using the screen to view live stats
- Monitoring progress on a longrunning task
- Rightclick or Optionclick the menu bar icon to quickly activate.
- Choose to activate with leftclick instead in the Preferences.
- Choose to activate at launch in the Preferences.
- Set the default duration in the Preferences, which is used when Lungo is activated by clicking the menu bar icon.
Important: Lungo will not prevent your Mac from sleeping if you close the lid. This is a Mac App Store limitation.
What’s New in Lungo 1.5.0
- Now requires macOS 10.13.
- Added “2 Hours” and “8 Hours” durations.
- Added “Allow Display to Sleep” setting. This will let the display sleep normally, but still keep your Mac from going to sleep.
- Added “Dim Icon When Deactivated” setting. This will make the icon dimmer when Lungo is deactivated to make the difference between the activated/deactivated state clearer.
- Added support for custom URL scheme. This is for advanced users that would like to script Lungo. Try running `$ open ‘lungo:activate?minutes=10’` in the Terminal app. See the Lungo website for more information.
