    Applet similar to caffeine?

    Is there any applet which is similar to caffeine for Ubuntu 13.04. I noticed they didn't make ppa for 12.10 and 13.04. So is there any other applet similar to caffeine?

    Regards.

    Can't say I know of any alternative app(s).

    And, can't remember where I got it, but...

    Caffeine is installed on this machine, and it works.

    you could also try compiling it from source .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough
