Lungo features

Has your computer ever gone into sleep mode unexpectedly and inconveniently? Lungo is a simple utility app that prevents your Mac from sleeping or dimming when you don’t want it to. Whether it’s a presentation, a video, or a recipe you need to keep open, Lungo keeps your Mac awake until you’ve finished what you’re working on.

Adjustable timeframes

Lungo lets you customize how long you want to keep your computer awake. Based on your task, you may need only a few minutes, or you may need all day. A drop-down menu offers options ranging from 10 minutes to “indefinitely.”

Easy On and Off

The app can be turned on with a simple click in the menu bar. If you realize you’ve set it for too long, or that you do want your Mac to be able to sleep, it just takes another click to deactivate it — no waiting for the clock to run out.

Automatic launch

The app can be configured to launch automatically when you log in to your Mac. This might be a useful option for someone who presents frequently from their computer. You won’t even have to remember to activate it.

Multiple use cases

Mac’s sleep mode can be a useful tool for saving power, but it can interrupt a lot of important tasks. Whether you’re monitoring a continuously updating app, watching a video stream, or using your laptop to display a recipe, sleep mode can be an unnecessary interruption. Lungo makes those problems a thing of the past.

Stay awake when it counts

There’s nothing worse than when your computer decides to take 30 minutes off to install updates and restart. Don’t be a victim of unexpected restarts. Lungo can help.
