Prevent a Mac from sleeping from the command line
Authored by: matverna on Jun 24, '13 07:56:27AM

There is a FAR FAR simpler way to prevent a mac from sleeping. I've been using it for over a decade.

Set a hot corner to "Disable Screen Saver" from the System Preferences.
Then move your mouse to that corner when you need it to stay awake...

That's it - mac stays awake. No contraptions, no command line, no third-party software.

Sure, if you're in front of that Mac. But the command line is often useful for working on remote Macs.
