If your Mac has ever dimmed its screen, or worse, gone to sleep while you were using it, then you may like the Should I Sleep app from Mr. Milk's Technology Dreams.

Should I Sleep: Tom's Mac Software Pick

Should I Sleep

Should I Sleep uses available Mac sensors to detect whether you're present and working on your Mac. If you are, then Should I Sleep prevents your Mac from taking a snooze.

The free version of Should I Sleep can detect whether a person is facing the Mac. Additional sensors are available as in-app purchases. You can add the ability to prevent sleep by detecting camera motion, a download in progress, if an external display is connected, if a processor-intensive task is being run, or if there is any sound activity occurring near the Mac. Each sensor is $.99, or you can purchase them all for $2.99.

You can custom configure each sensor, and test the sensor's settings as you configure them.

Should I Sleep is free. A full set of usage sensors is $2.99.
