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.

This is the best program for downloading anything from YouTube I have found.
@smaragdus - $9.95 USD is very reasonable, but really sucks that only minor updates are included :(

TP109 on 2017-03-19 11:20

I've always used the batch program and not the standard version, although it works well too. The batch is superior for downloading multiple videos. I use an older free version of the batch program that's limited to a max of 5 simultaneous downloads. From what I understand, the new batch version doesn't work at all without purchasing a license.

If it ain't free it ain't 4me..... jus sayin :)
