Outstanding program for pulling bits of text out of menu items that resist other tools. I use it at least once every few days for writing HOWTOs or bug reports.

Caffeine v1.64

billon on 26 Sep 2017

Caffeine prevents an automatic screensaver or going into standby/sleep/hibernate, useful for presentations or playing video. It works by simulating a keypress once every 59 seconds, so your PC thinks you're still working at the keyboard. Double-clicking the program icon "empties" the coffee pot and temporarily disables the program, while doing this a second time re-enables it.

Other command-line arguments for more functions are present on the web site.

@Napiophelios: Likely won't work for WoW or any other network game produced after about 1999, because they look for game activity (positions and actions and other more clever things) for determining idle players, which has nothing to do with your computer sleeping or screensaving. Pressing F15 (which is what I assume this program does once per 59 seconds) has nothing to do with gameplay so it won't reset any idle timer on the server side.

is there a way for this program to read an Outlook (not outlook express) address book listbox of type OUTEXVLB? I do not get anything at the bottom of the screen. I have tried it with around 200,000 items and with about 800 items and nothing shows up. Is it because this program does not support this particular listbox/window???

Thanks for the great tool!

Cornflower on 2009-02-05 07:36

v1.50 now has a drag and drop button taht you drop on the window you want to see the text from. It makes this very valuable the tool so much easier and intuitive to use. An excellent upgrade, imo.

Unfortunately, it still does not seem to handle Outexvlb type listboxes.

Webfork on 2009-11-06 18:42

*Extremely* important tool for software testers. Getting lengthy error messages out of static windows is critical to helping developers understand what went wrong. If you want to help any of the makers of software on this or other sites, start with SysExporter.
