I am having an issue where my retina MacBook Pro (10.8.1) will sleep when uTorrent is actively uploading or downloading. I have tried my old go to programs like "Caffeine" and "InsomniaX" to no avail. I was about to try Jiggler, but when I am finished working at the machine for the night, I like to sleep the display (using a hot corner) and I want my display to remain off/asleep. Jiggler would wake the display every 5 minutes with the password prompt, then the display would sleep and this would repeat till the morning.
I have read this question and the best answer was helpful but left me wanting to know more.
I am wondering if someone can give me a little more info on how the caffeinate command works? For example, if I were to run the command
caffeinate -i open -W -a uTorrent.app (which I assume is working because it will open uTorrent) does the caffeinate command remain active until:
- The terminal window is closed,
- Break (control+c) is entered,
- uTorrent is closed,
- Until restart or log out, or
- Until a 'decaffeinate' or (complimenting command) is entered in the Terminal.
Basically if I wished to run the
caffeinate command, would I have to run it every time I launched uTorrent?
