Caffeine on Fedora 18

If annoyed by the lack of handy options for preventing computer sleep while watching movies, Caffeine is the answer.
There is a Gnome Extension if you are using Gnome Shell but if you are using Cinnamon then that doesn't work. Fortunately, there is a Caffeine application that works in that case. It is not in official Fedora repository but is available at RPM Sphere (link).

The project homepage is here. Software can also be downloaded from there and installed by following these instructions (link). That, however, did not work for me but installing the RPM package right after this did.

Edit: Since Caffeine does not seem to work with current Fedora 18, this still seems to be the only way to prevent Gnome from going to sleep.
