How to prevent your computer from sleeping

Do you need to run a big job overnight?  Do you need to prevent your computer from falling asleep on the job?

If you’re using a program that needs to run for an extended period of time, the Education IT team can provide you with a small utility that — while it is running — will prevent your comptuer from going to sleep.  We use it when rendering videos that sometimes take 4-5 hours to complete.

Please contact us and we’ll send you a link where you can download the program.
