pm-inhibit - Power Management inhibitor

Pm-inhibit is a tool to prevent a computer from going into any kind of “sleep mode” while a given program is running. It is intended as a replacement for systemd-inhibit, for systems where systemd itself is not available (e.g., Slackware distributions) but where the desktop environment provides systemd-compatible DBus services.


Call pm-inhibit with the name of the program you want to run unhindered by power management features:

$ pm-inhibit /usr/bin/qjackctl

This will request the inhibition of power management features and start the QjackCtl application. The inhibition will be released when QjackCtl terminates.
