Hi there, you mean while you play music? It is intended that the mac will not go to sleep while you play music. Let me know if I misunderstood what you mean.
No, I mean when the playback is stopped.

Hi there @Petr D.

Please try to reinstall the app to see if the problem is resolved. If it isn't, then please let me know.
This did not help. Problem still persists.

Hi @Petr D.

I've tried to replicate the issue on our side, with the same app and OS versions. I also checked the activity monitor and the option to prevent sleep is set to yes, but it still works without a problem - with the playback on pause.
I've also tried to set to sleep manually and it works. Perhaps try to do this last step and see if the computer goes to sleep automatically after, with the playback on pause. Another tip could be checking your energy saving settings and restore to default. Let me know how it goes!
