This app is used every day 5/5
THIS APP DOES A GREAT JOB EVERYDAY.
ONE THING FOR SURE YOU DON'T HAVE
LOGIN WHEN YOU ARE USING YOUR
COMPUTER FOR A LONG TIME. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE WAKEN UP. YOUR THOUGHTS
ARE NOT BROKEN UP!
Works at least as well as Caffiene 5/5
I used to use Caffeine but now that it isn't supported in the new MacOS I use Jolt and it does everything Caffiene did plus more. Simple, easy, and free. It just works. 10/10. Would recommend.
Exactly what I needed! 5/5
Jolt is perfect and does exactly what it says. I haven't had any issues whatsoever
Great App! 5/5
This is awesome, super easy to download and works great!
Life hack. 5/5
Makes life so much easier.
Computer doesn't shut off and force me to re-engage my vpn and log back into my various applications.
Great app 5/5

Coming from linux with the caffeine app, this was a most when i switched to MAC
Good for backups 5/5
By Mr. Bohemian
I backup on multiple drives once a day. I can only do this reliably at night. This app lets me just dim my computer and forget about the back up that lasts until 3 AM.
Still the first choice, with new Catalina OS 5/5
I've had this app since Mojave and it's worked great, even in Mojave Beta versions.
I was hesitant seeing how this app hasn't been updated in a year. I gave it a shot regardless and it's still the best.
Just as promised 5/5
Does the Job! Thanks.
Does exactly what it says it does. And does it well 5/5
This is a small little app but so crucial if you like to leave your computer on while it's doing it's thing like encoding video, uploading, downloading or anything of the sort.
It is easily customizable and has a small footprint. Just what I needed!
Another Good Cup Of Joe 5/5
This app is minimalistic, and does what it says it does. It'll keep the display awake for various intervals, depending on what the user selects. It also has an indefinite mode that just keeps the display awake as long as there is sufficient charge.
All in all, an excelent addition to the manu bar of anyone's mac.
Great for meetings, long running jobs, system monitoring. 5/5
I have been using Jolt for a couple years and it’s just great.
It has had its occasional bug, but what software hasn’t? The main thing is the devs are responsive and have put out a great little app that just works. I use Jolt when I need to monitor things for a time or during meetings when I need to refer to certain apps once in awhile. Having the ability to keep my mac from sleeping is really important in those situations and Jolt does the job.
Love it! 5/5
Needed something that was super easy to use and this is the one. No ads, no bother, just easy to use software. Kudos to the developers!
As advertised 4/5
By Tobias W.
Works as advertised with minimal fuss and interruptions.
A Necessary App for Macbook Pro Users 5/5
I dock my Macbook Pro to my iMac 27 and this is the perfect applicaiton that really works when I switch between computers to prevent my laptop from sleeping. I was using another application for a while, but after Mojave and Catalina it was not consistant. Thus fat I love this appliation becasue it just works.
Does the job 5/5
No ads... prevents undesired sleep when laptop is plugged in. Problem solved.
Muy buena aplicación 5/5
Al cambiar mi a mi nuevo MacBook Pro la aplicación que tenía anterior ya no figura en la App Store, sin embargo al probar Jolt of Caffeine superó mis espectativas. 100% recomendable!!
I’m really impressed with what this does. Love it v
Exactly what described with no adds 5/5
Great program, no adds just right!
Great product 5/5
I love this!!
Love Jolt! 5/5
Been using daily over a year and this app is amazing! Used to be an avid "Caffeine" app user, until I found Jolt. Keeps my computer on when I want it -- with no ads and no fuss. Couldn't ask for anything better.
A Caffeine Clone 5/5
Works as advertised. No ads. I wish I could activate it with the left mouse button (like Caffeine) instead of the right one - muscle memory is hard to forget :-)
Nothing more to say. EXCELLENT!!
(And it's free, too!)
It works 5/5
I had issues with the "Caffeine" app and since moving to "Jolt of Caffeine" I haven't had any issues. 5/5.
Extremely Annoying Ads 1/5
Seems every time I logon, there's a POPUP asking 'has this app solved your issue' DUH! If it didn't I would've deleted it, which I'm about to do and report if it keeps asking
Works as advertised! 5/5
Was using Cafeinne back in the day but no longer in App Store. This is the closest replacement I have found and works great for presentations and meetings where you don't want your screensaver to kill your deals! Turned on the preference to turn off Jolt after an hour so it doesn't kill my battery if I forget to turn it off.
Works, but a couple of minor annoyances... 4/5
First annoyance is that it takes 3 clicks/taps to turn it on (i.e., tap menu bar icon, tap "start jolt for" then tap then time, which is always forever in my case). How about tap the icon in the menu bar once to turn it on or off with the current time setting?
Second annoyance is this weird dialog that comes up every time I turn it off (only takes 2 taps/clicks to turn it off). The dialog says omething like, "are you still having troubles with your Mac sleeping? if so, we are here to support you...". So clicking the "No" (or yes) button on that dialog makes the 3rd tap/click to shut it off.
Other than those minor things it works as expected. I would prefer the "on" icon to just be a full cup, without the BIG BRIGHT RED bit, but meh. No big deal.
Keeps my computer awake 5/5
I used to use the app Caffine and loved it but it went away. Jolt is similar. Choose the length of time you want to keep your computer awake from several pre-sets including "forever." I use it all the time. It's free and there are no adds.
Essential utility 5/5
By Randomly selected
Jolt of Caffeine does a great job of keeping the Mac from going to sleep. Everyone needs this. :) Free and fully supported!
In-progress downloads are no longer interrupted due to macbook sleep 5/5
Great tool. For people who use those slow / free downloading services, sometimes you need your computer to stay awake for 4 - 5 hours at a time while the download completes. This solved my problem. I don't know how I managed without it.
I was looking for a replacement for the app named "Caffeine" and this one is much better. It has options for timers, using a screensaver, and much more than I expected with a free app. I haven't experienced any issues with ads.
Didn't work 1/5
I installed this while waiting for a long compile, so that I could carry my macbook out to my car at the end of the day and plug it in there without stopping the process. No such luck, the moment I closed the lid and unplugged the dock, it went to sleep. This may have worked in a previous version of OSX, but not on 10.14.5
Works as promised
Great Invention 5/5
This app is GREAT ^-^ if you want to do home sharing from a macbook to your apple TV. you can close the macbook (connected to power) while your apple tv is streaming movies or whatever from your hard drive. It works on a timer so after your movie is done the macbook will turn off and rest. Great invention !!
Works perfectly 5/5
This little app does exactly what I want without any bloated features. Keeping my Mac awake is just a click away. Very happy!
Love the app, but... 4/5
I would REALLY love the option to change which mouse button turns it on. I'm used to left-clicking the icon to just activate indefinitely. Now, every time I click it, I get the menu, and then remember that I have to right-click to turn it on. Any way we could have an option??
Didn't work 1/5
Started the app, made sure duration was set to 'Forever', yet display still turned off ☹️
A fun little app that keeps my computer from falling asleep. If it could work on me.
Performs as advertised. 4/5
Easy to setup the app to start/stop via shortcut. I would give it 5 stars if it didnt continually prompt me about if it solved my screen sleeping problem. Needs to be a radio button to skip that message in the future.
pretty good 4/5
I just wish you didn’t have to click the time EVERY time you want to use the app. Just make it so you can click on the coffee cup and it goes to the already-chosen time period from the previous time. Minor annoyance. Otherwise it works.
Perfect App 5/5
By Subatomic Power
Works reliably and perfectly. Can't ask more.
Just Needs a Single Click On Function 3/5
With caffeine, you could just push the icon and it would turn on with whatever setting you had (e.g., 1 hour, 2 hours, permanent, etc.). However, with Jolt, you have to click the icon and then move through a drop down menu just to click on your preset duration. It’s a little annoying because it seems unnecessary, especially if you already have your duration set.
Jolt Keeps Mac Awake for Automated Tasks 5/5
Does what it's suppose to do...
It works! 5/5
Dual monitor set up with 2 sceptre monitors and I'm able to close the laptop lid and no issues.
Excellent App 5/5
Since Mac's are second rate with serious flaws, you have to get apps which fix them. This app works perfectly and eliminates one more annoying aspect of my computer. Congratulations to the developer!!
Another former Caffeine user here 5/5
Echoing what others have said, I’ve been a long-time user of the Caffeine app, and was sad to see it discontinued. So far, this app has proven to be the perfect replacement. Highly recommended!
Works Just Like it Says 5/5
Works well. No adds like some people complain about, just the occasional "rate us if you wouldn't mind." Good product.
Great app for keeping computer running 5/5
This app does exactly what it's supposed to do. It keeps my computer running so that tasks are executed in the background without fearing that the computer will fall asleep causing some automated tasks to go undone. This app is simple and does everything I need it to do. Thank you!
