Wimoweh Editor's review

By preventing the Mac system from sleeping while a program is running, Wimoweh for Mac keeps users from losing data or task progress, all in a small and easy-to-use package. The freeware program installs as a small icon on the top of the main Mac menu bar and performs its main function well.

When programs are operating that take a long time to complete, such as DVD ripping, having the computer sleep part way through can halt the process and frustrate the user. Wimoweh for Mac tries to improve this by allowing you more control over how your Mac sleeps. After clicking on the application's icon, the drop-down menu is easy to navigate, with well labeled submenus and buttons. Users can select an option to completely stop the computer from sleeping, or not sleeping until a certain amount of time has passed. This time can be adjusted easily using a slider in the appropriate submenu. For specific operations, the program also has options to select certain programs that, while running, will keep the computer from sleeping. The application list populates only as programs are running, which is a disappointment, but overall the option is functional. All of the options do prevent the loss of data and progress by keeping the computer awake.
