    Hi, are there any apps that would allow me to temporarily prevent the mac going to sleep but allow the display to go to sleep after the specified time period?

    Currently I have Caffeine installed. But it is not exactly I need for this purpose as Caffeine keeps the display on until it is disabled.

    you can go into system preferences>energy saver, and select 'never sleep' for the computer, but set a time for the display to sleep.

    no 3rd party app needed...
