Can't you disable it saving temporary files in the options?

opsimathic on 2017-08-12 08:51

@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

I've been using Don't Sleep for some time now and it works great for me. It updates frequently but I never had a problem with the many previous versions. I use it when doing routine unattended maintenance, when making large backups and downloads.

I think "Don't Sleep" should win an award for the most updated program on TPFW. :-) Works well though, thanks.

WOW no comments for such a long time, this is a program I have used for many years and it still works great for me even now while using Windoze 10 does just what it says and does it perfectly.

@lyx
I have seen your previous comment. I wish it was not deleted just so that everyone else could see who the real braindead moron is. As for contributing to TPFC... you are not missed.

BTW, System Spec works fine on my XP SP3.

NK2Edit edits the "auto-complete" entries in Microsoft Outlook.
