InsomniaX – Version 2.1.8 (The Quiet One)

This will hopefully be the last release for sometime, it features some of the most commonly requested features and resolved some critical issues such as the first lid sleep being ignored.

It also features the much requested “Sleep Display” hot key functionality thanks to a very generous donation by Simon, these donations really do help keep the project alive.

You may also notice that this version skips the 2.1.7 build, this is due to the 2.1.7 release being used as a test for many users and being discovered by many users, as such to ensure everyone gets the latest version the 2.1.7 was skipped 🙂

Once again thanks everyone for your support over the years, and I am glad so many people still find the utility useful after so many years!

  • Added sensor detection and alerts should no sensors be detected for safety system
  • Added Sleep Display Hotkey
  • Insomnia is now r11
    • Fixed issue where system did not sleep after unload with lid closed
    • Fixed issue where system would not prevent sleep on lid close for first lid event

    Hi Andrew, thank you guys for still maintaining InsomniaX !

    It still says in the About box that InsomniaX is released under the GPL but the latest source i can find on the web is super old. Where can we find the current source ?

    Any chance of getting more options for disabling sleep? Like for instance disable sleep on Lid closed on AC but only if not connected to external display…

    I am having an issue where every time I reboot I have to reenable the setting to Disable Lid Sleep. I have Save states on exit enabled. Is this a bug or am I misunderstanding how the latter works? If so, is there anyway I can accomplish this? If not, can this be added as a feature in the next release?
