This is gonna be a quick and short post about a tool I use on my Mac called “Caffeine“. This tool essentially allows me, at the click of a button, to disable the display’s dim and eventual turn off function. It’s useful when you’re reading something and you won’t be touching the keyboard or the mouse, but you’d still like the screen to be on. It’s useful also when I’m playing along a guitar tab and I can’t afford to stop playing just to get the screen back on.

Anyway, this tool places an icon on the status bar. The only problem is that this icon is in color and it just stands out in my status bar like a sore thumb. SO! I created a new icon set. You can get it by clicking here. Scroll down to have a look at the icons before you download it.

All you have to do is copy them to /Applications/Caffeine.app/Contents/Resources/ et voilà! I’ve included two more icons (not shown here) for the right click behavior.

This is what it looks like in action:
