Review: PleaseSleep forces your computer to sleep

Put your computer to sleep even with applications running using PleaseSleep for Mac.

PleaseSleep for Mac prevents open applications from holding up a computer's sleep settings. The application is easy to set up and works well to allow the energy saver setting to be followed.

After installation, the free program adds a small icon to the top menu bar. The application also alerts the user that the screensaver, depending on the settings, can interfere with the program's operation. It then asks if the user wants to go to the preferences menu to disable the saver, which can be done with a button in the program window. There are no full menus to speak of, but clicking the icon brings up a drop-down menu. This includes an option for enabling the program, as well as accessing a preferences menu and the main energy saver screen for the computer. In the preferences area, the user can change the launching preferences, as well as the appearance of the icon. The window can also be changed to appear as a floating panel. PleaseSleep for Mac did work well during testing and allowed the computer to sleep without any problems.

PleaseSleep for Mac is suitable for users who have applications that keep their computer from sleeping. The program works well and includes some useful options to help users configure it.
