    Hey all,

    Is there an alternative to Insomiat/x? I can't use the former anymore, since it would crash my MBP when switching between discrete and internal graphics (gfxcardstatus).

    And I can't use the latter, since it just doesn't work on Lion, when I did test it a few months ago.

    I've been using InsomniaX on ALL versions of Lion without crashing, and also in conjunction with gfxCardStatus. No other app that I could find would let me force-enable clamshell mode.
    Caffeine is good as long as you keep the lid open; otherwise, the computer still goes to sleep.

    Try InsomniaX now. It should work. I've used it literally 3 minutes ago.
