Improve your Mac's sleep,
reduce your energy footprint

The less time your Mac is doing things during sleep, the less electricity it uses. Which not only reduces your energy usage (and saving a little coin), it increases the standby time and battery life of a mobile Mac, giving you more battery to get things you need done.

Sleep Aid is designed for efficiency.

During Sleep, Sleep Aid uses less CPU than some Apple system processes. When it comes to Sleep Aid updates, Sleep Aid only downloads update that are specifically for your Mac, saving disk space, bandwidth and energy.
