An application to keep your PC awake, but allows you to turn off the screen at the same time. Created especially for MS Surface Pro, where for normal apps you can only turn off both or neither.

On older Windows versions it will require you to install .NET Framework 4.7.2 or newer.

What is the trick

I found out that my Surface Pro 6 will not sleep while a sound stream is playing. So this simple app plays a silent sound stream all the time (it also sets some „don’t sleep“ flags as well).
