@gentmatt: I thought I had reproduced the no-sleep problem, but after controlled testing (and closing a bunch of other stuff), my Macbook (Air, Lion) sleeps consistently whether or not the notifier is running.

@gentmatt: It sounds like regular network activity may be causing your machine not to sleep. If you use Gmail, I wonder if you could try the Gmail Notifier to see whether it causes the same kind of problem.

@gentmatt: That's very strange, I don't even know how to prevent a machine from sleeping. Also, my machine sleeps just fine even with the notifier running. Question for you: Does this problem still happen when you choose the "Hide for xx hours" option in the notifier?

You're right, I had copied too much stuff in there. It's now a somewhat more reasonable 350 kb. New version coming soon!

I have to say that's fairly shocking. I added Growl support to try it out and the .dmg size went from 80 kb to over 850 kb. Is that expected? Is that considered reasonable?

Thanks! Notice that if you don't click on the inbox icon on the web site, then the read items won't be removed from SENotifier's list.

I've just uploaded a new version with a "hide" option. I'll have to look into Growl support.
