InsomniaX, disabling the sleep mode on a MacBook


It always has been a missing feature: disabling the sleep mode on a Apple Laptop. Who does not want to use it as a big juke-box or go warwalking. The best looking server ever, especially at about one inch height. This small utility is what you will want, this small utility acts as a wrapper to the Insomnia kernel extension.

What’s new in version 1.3.5
Functional in Mac OS X 10.6 retail
Fixed bug relating to versions of OS X less then 10.6
Hibernation has been hidden but not removed please read the readme if you use this feature, bugs have also been fixed in the hibernation for 10.6

Intel, Mac OS X 10.5 or later

Uninstalling/Repairing InsomniaX
The most common ticket in the help desk regarding issues with InsomniaX or requesting instructions on how to remove InsomniaX, below is a simple step list of what is required to completely wipe out InsomniaX. If any problems exist after removing InsomniaX it should not be related to Insomnia as it works as a passive changing, in other words once its unloaded all changes are moved (Especially after a reboot any trace should be gone)
*Reboot the machine
*Ensure InsomniaX is not running
*Enter in terminal : defaults delete com.semaja2.InsomniaX
*Delete ~/Application Support/InsomniaX
*Delete /Applications/InsomniaX.app
*If reinstalling download latest version from MacOSXApplications
