Monitor not turning off when running Duplicacy on Mac

Whenever I have Duplicacy running on my Mac, my monitors never turn off (which they usually do when I walk away from the computer for 10 minutes)

Can you run this command in the terminal to see if Duplicacy is blocking the sleep:

pmset -g assertions

When Duplicacy is running a backup, it will prevent the computer from going into sleep, so you will see a line like:

   pid 83516(Duplicacy): [0x0004433f00058ab2] 00:00:16 NoDisplaySleepAssertion named: "Duplicacy running" 

But that line should disappear as soon as the backup finishes.

Ok. That is what is happening. I get not having the computer sleeping, but I am not sure why the displays have to remain on to do that.

I should have used kIOPMAssertionTypeNoIdleSleep instead of kIOPMAssertionTypeNoDisplaySleep. Will fix this in the next update.

This has been fixed in version 2.0.1.

Thanks! Works great now!
