Gnome Shell Extension Inhibit Applet is a gnome shell extension that gives you the ability to inhibit auto-suspend or screensaver from activating, simular to the original applet in gnome 2. It will add a new button on the panel with a dynamically changing icon to allow the user to see if the inhibit applet is active. Text describing the current state is shown on mouse hover.

It's much easier than installing manually.
