Caffeine is a little daemon that sits in your systray, and prevents the screensaver from showing up, or the system from going to sleep. It does so when an application is fullscreened (eg: youtube), or when you click on the systray icon (which you can do, when, eg: reading).
The intention of this fork is to also evolve on its own, not only fixing issues, but also implemented missing features, when relevant.
Caffeine-ng was shortly know as Taurine, a play on its successor's name, since taurine is a known stimulant, commonly found in energy drinks. However, this name did not last, since the artwork would not match adequately, and changing it was undesirable.
- Either a screensaver that implements the
org.freedesktop.ScreenSaverAPI (this includes KDE, amongst others) API, gnome-screensaver, XSS and/or DPMS, xautolock.
