Caffeine

Caffeine is a handy little app that sits in your notification area and allows you to toggle on/off screensaver/powersaving mode at will. it comes in real handy when gaming or watching a movie. personally I couldn't live without it. unfortunately it isn't in the repo's but it's easy enough to add the ppa:

first, open a terminal and edit your sources.list with this command:

            gksudo gedit  /etc/apt/sources.list

this will open your sources.list file in gedit. at the bottom of the file add:

 deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/caffeine-developers/ppa/ubuntu lucid main                                                                            deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/caffeine-developers/ppa/ubuntu lucid main

save the file and close it.
 
now go back to the terminal and run:
 
   sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 569113AE
 
followed by:
 
   sudo apt-get update
 
then finally:
 
   sudo apt-get install caffeine
 
once installed you will find caffeine in Mint Menu under accessories.
when you open the app you will see the coffee cup icon in your notification area.
left click the icon to toggle on/off. right click for options.
 
enjoy :-)
