There is a note on the InsomniaX site providing a download link and instructions for installing a kext update that makes the app 64-bit compatible. Since I do not have Lion, I do not know if this will make the app compatible. Can someone check it out?

@Steve I can confirm that the app works in Lion, provided that the instructions on the site are followed.

works fine (does what it's supposed to), but when I try to click disable, it remains enabled. only way to turn it off is to quit it. and then have to restart it in disabled mode if want to keep it running for easy access later

My wife had some odd sleep issues with her MBP. I found there is a Lion compatible version of InsomniaX, version 2.0. To me, this along with some discussions I read indicate that 1.3.5 does not always work with Lion.
