It seems to me that InsomniaX, a utility to let a MacBook stay awake when the lid is closed, is not working on Mavericks. Can anyone confirm for me?


I experience the same. The "Disable Idle Sleep" selection is automatically turned off and the computer goes to sleep after some time.


Doesn't work at my MBA mid 2011, with Mavericks 10.9.3.

  • @grgarside Could you detail how exactly it doesn't answer the question? To me, it looks it completely does. – yurkennis May 21 '14 at 20:49

  • @grgarside Looks like your delete vote is still there. – yurkennis May 21 '14 at 20:51
  • Can't remove delete votes on mobile :( It'll disappear after a while though as no one else will vote – grg May 21 '14 at 20:52
  • @GeorgeGarside Still didn't disappear. – yurkennis Jun 11 '14 at 15:12

It does work to disable the sleep on lid close, however, I've been getting random restarts with it running.

  • Which hardware and Mavericks version did it works at for you? – yurkennis May 21 '14 at 19:32
