    Caffeine doesn't seem to work with Lion. It's not turning on and the light under the app on my dock isn't showing no matter how many times I click on the icon.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    Caffeine works fine for me under Lion. Did you install it through the Mac App Store?

    Another vote, mine works fine.

    I downloaded my copy from the developers website when I was running Snow Leopard.

    Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing? It works fine for me. I dl'd it from the developer's site a year or so ago.

    I have not had any problems at all using caffeine.
    It doesn't taste as well as the coffee I drink, but it does keep my MacBook Pro awake.

    Been using it with Lion since the day Lion was released and no issues at all.

    Mine works fine - just used it today.

    Did you look up on the tool bar (where your battery icon, bluetooth icon, time, etc. are).
    When you click on the dock icon, the little cup appears on that line. Then click on the cup - will show filled with coffee and is working.

    Sorry if you already knew this - just trying to help. :D

    Finally working!

    Thanks for your suggestions, everyone. I had originally downloaded Caffeine from the developer's site. But after many days of frustration, I deleted the app and then downloaded it again but this time from the Mac App Store. It now works fine! Goodness knows why! :)
