It would be nice if Caffeine remembered its previous state (like Nocturne does).
This way you would just have to launch and quit the app to toggle the 'cafféine' mode, thus saving some space in the menu bar when Caffeine isn't n used.

Great App and...Hey Adam!
Thank You very much for making that Icon! :D

Awesome app — thanks! I couldn't resist creating a 'coffee cup' replacement icon-set for the menu-bar. I'll forward it onto Lighthead for their consideration, too. In the meantime, you can <a href="http://sabrestyle.com/uploads/caffeine-icons.zip">download the icons</a> and replace them yourself.

Right-click on the app. Select 'Show Package Contents'. Navigate to the 'Contents' and then the 'Resources' folder. Create a backup of all the '.png' images in that folder. Then, copy-paste the replacements in. Restart Caffeine. Use at your own risk. ;-)

Perfect for watching movies or TV shows and disabling power management functions.

i agree with jackjenkins. awesome lil' app but that icon has got to go. a mug or cup of coffee that is dimmed when caffeine is off, perhaps. or better yet, add quicksilver support so i can just hide the menubar icon and turn caffeine on and off with a few keystrokes? growl integration would rock, as well.

anyway, it does that one thing really well. on the other hand, i do wonder why it seems to be using just over 15mb of ram for such a simple (but no less useful) app.

Lovely app! Does exactly what it says it will, can´t ask for more than that :)

Brilliant! Just an aesthetic suggestion: perhaps the "Z's with a line through it" could be changed into a coffee cup, thus keeping with the "caffeine" them. just a thought, but great regardless. :)

Tiny! It's like an espresso.
Equal parts Mac ingenuity and wit. :-)
