Mac OS X

Waiting for disks to wake up can be a frustrating experience for content creators who frequently work with media files located on multiple disks. Disksomnia 4.0 has been completely rewritten as a menu bar app that works seamlessly in the background to keep disks awake, including those that ignore Energy Saver preferences.

  • "Honestly, seriously the best 10 bucks I have ever spent. I struggled for years with FCP thinking all the pausing and carry-on was normal. 60 seconds after installing Disksomnia I had huge regrets, huge regrets that I hadn't heard of it much earlier! It has made my edit workflow, for the first time in years, seamless. Great job Digital Heaven!"
