Startup doesn't work with Windows 8


Even if NoSleepHD is set to start on startup, it won't start. It works fine to start the program manually. This currently affects Windows 8 RTM.

Just a heads up, the startup issue remains with windows 8.1.

Try xSleep - seems to be a viable alternative: http://xsleep.codeplex.com/

I was having the same issue as well...

But, I've also been using it as a(n) "Portable"

Meaning that I'd once installed it to an external USB HDD and,
noticing it still in place after restoring my OS from backup image,
continued using it, I think I just created a link to it in "Startup" or
called it from the Task Scheduler.

I didn't look at what it added (if anything) to the
registry, so. . .
