Description from store Be Awake is a simple and lightweight Chrome extension that helps you keep your computer awake while you work. It does this by preventing the system from entering sleep mode when the extension is activated. This can be useful in situations where you need to keep your computer running for a long period of time, such as when you are watching a video, running a program that takes a long time to complete, or working on a project that requires your computer to stay awake. To activate Be Awake, simply click the extension's icon in the Chrome toolbar. The extension will then keep your computer awake until you deactivate it by clicking the icon again. Be Awake is a convenient tool that can save you time and hassle by eliminating the need to manually prevent your computer from sleeping. The source code for Be Awake is available on its Github page, where it is open-source and available for anyone to use or contribute to.

  • (2022-02-17) ultome: Everything working as expected. I recommend!
  • (2020-11-09) P N: Really hard to see with the icon if the extension is turned off or on. Indeed it's impossible, because I see there's a change, but impossible to say if my current state is off or on. So unable to use it.

  • (2016-11-11) Works great, only issue is the "on" status icon/colour could be better...
  • (2015-10-06) Akiva Rosenblatt: Doesn't work.

    only keeps the screen ON all the time should be littel sound alrt
  • (2017-08-07, v:0.1) Sebastian Addis: Indicating icon
    Why not change the indicating icon to something more people can see easily? For reference, the coloured one is on and the grayed out one is off. It is very tricky for some people to see whether or not their screen will stay awake.

  • (2016-06-23, v:0.1) John Luke Lusty: Compatibility Issue
    Extension does not work on my Acer Chromebook 11 (CB3-111).
  • (2016-04-26, v:0.1) Tim Robinson: Settings
    It would be great if I could choose how long it would be kept awake. I may need it to stay awake for a long time while I'm using it, but it would be nice if I could set it so that it still goes to sleep after a set amount of time, in the event I've just left it on.

  • (2015-08-22, v:0.1) on/off
    please tell me which icon is awake and which one is sleep.
  • (2014-10-08, v:0.1) Karl S: On/Off Setting
    Can you please describe or post images that show the icon when this is On and Off? I am guessing the colored one means the system will be kept awake, but can't be sure.
  • (2014-07-31, v:0.1) Ross R: indicator
    I see no indication or change when clicking icon, so I don't know if it is in "stay awake" mode or default Chrome mode? thanks
