Keeps your Mac awake

Well crafted and has all the features you would expect but better—should ship right with macOS

Stay awake

Prevent your Mac from falling asleep, dimming your screen or starting the screensaver. Theine keeps macOS awake just like caffeine does with you. And we all do enjoy a good cup of coffee occasionally, don’t we? So does your Mac!

Less but better

Theine looks brilliant in light and dark mode. It is designed for modern retina displays and perfectly fits to macOS accent colors. But our favourite feature is: It is as little design as possible.

Always on time

Espresso or Americano? The timer function allows you to control exactly how long Theine should be activated. You can also set a custom default duration or choose to caffeinate your Mac infinitely. It’s easy and fun.

It just works

Caffeinate your Mac through a simple click on its menubar icon or even better: define a custom global hot key. It is fast, lightweight and optimized for macOS 10.15 Catalina.

Caffeinate when…

  • Watching or recording videos
  • Listening to podcasts
  • Doing a presentation at work or school
  • Waiting for large files to download
  • Talking to your friends
  • Rendering sophisticated media files
  • Observing live stats or long-running tasks on your screen

Theine will not prevent your MacBook from sleeping if you close its lid for security reasons
