    I just did it on my macbook. When I "activated" it, I was expecting some additional instructions, clicks etc. but instead my screen suddenly became less harsh going to a warm glow....quite pleasing.

    Yeah it's nice to find 'lightweight' software in these days of bloatware. I set the transition time to slow so it changes over the course of an hour, simulates the real sunset better for me.

    Getting a whole uninterrupted night's sleep is the best. It usually never happens but recently I was on a prescription of percocet for an injury and man.. those things would knock me out and the next thing I know it's morning. Best feeling ever. But normally I wake up after 3 or 4 hours and then just lie in bed until just before I have to get up. At that point I fall into a deep sleep and wake up grouchily to the alarm

    Seems like I had to take that once, or something and it sure knocked me out also, but then.... at the time we had a bed with tall posts... and when I woke up.... I thought I was on a boat....like the love boat or something though it looked more like a pirate ship.... and..... well never mind..... but DH wished I had more of them.

    I've been using it, haven't noticed a difference in my sleep (I also got some orange safety glasses that filter out blue, I put them on about 2 hours before bed every night since I'm pretty much at a computer screen, smart phone, tablet or tv the last 2 hours before bed) but I can't say I fall asleep any easier or get any better sleep neither one bothers me to do so I keep using both.

    I think f.lux is a great idea and use it on my desktop and PC.

    I've found that using the Phillips goLite in the morning has helped me even more with establishing a good circadian rhythm. I had a lot of trouble getting tired and the bright morning light helped a great deal. These lights are often associated with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) but I think it's a great thing to try for anyone who has trouble getting sleepy at night or is traveling across timezones.
