The Viber app preventing my Mac from display sleep.

I want to start screensaver while Viber is working, so killing Viber's pid is not an option. How to remove assertion on Viber?

  • How would that work? Viber is actively listening to incoming calls? – Ruskes Apr 21 '15 at 0:44
  • I think it should behave as skype, it's just suspending or something and lets display to turn off. – megas Apr 21 '15 at 8:56
