Caffeine | Windows 10 64 bit + Windows Defender | Not working Empty Caffeine | Windows 10 64 bit + Windows Defender | Not working

Hi, 

Caffeine doesn't appear to be working on my PC. 

Windows 10
64-bit
Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2
Windows Defender

Are there any prerequisites - e.g. .NET framework version, java, etc? 

Thanks.

I have the same windows version and no problems with caffeine . Did you download the latest version ?
It does not need any program that is not standard on win10 , if a library is missing there would be an error dialog window with some info .

Why do you think it is not working ? Do you have the traymenu with the options ? Does it not prevent PC to go to sleep mode ?

Yes. I downloaded the latest version from this site.

The application is active, but my monitor is turning off due to inactivity.

Maybe you can use/try the shift key instead of sending F15 ?

I am running it as admin but i guess that is not really needed . You can always try if you have permission to run the exe as administrator .

Best regards ,

There are a few more command line switches to help keep your machine awake - can you try the -stes command line, and see whether that works any better please?
