What is the template to add commands to the menu list? Whatever i try it doesn't work.

Anyone knows about other cmd replacement that allows you to save commands?

JPsoft 4DOS/4NT (currently renamed to Take Command) allows you to set up persistent "alias", just check the documentation...

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.

Very nice and quite useful thanks for your work.

Caffeine v1.63

billon on 20 Feb 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.
