You might want to ask the software developer why it might not work.

Have you got the latest version which is 2.66. If you haven't then please download it and try again. It may work.

Just to let you know, you can go into your Power Options, click "Choose what the power buttons do" from the left, then just select "Do Nothing" for the "When I press the Sleep button" section. No need for that extra program.

It's the same button as far as Windows is concerned.

if you still don't have any luck with that program, you could try an alternative: insomnia

it's open source, portable, and comes in 32 or 64 bit flavours



i use it when i'm downloading from steam overnight - steam doesn't seem to keep the computer awake when downloading, which is crazy!
