I have Mac Computer. I stream my itunes radio stations as well

Resolved Question:

I have Mac Computer. I stream my itunes radio stations as well as my own music collection to a Bose speaker. The music spontaneously quits playing after one or two hours. How can I keep this from happening? We enjoy having music playing during house parties, etc. Seem that this was not happening a couple of years ago. Have tried to adjust the preference settings in both itunes and mac, but to no avail.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

It sounds like the computer is going to sleep. I'm not sure what settings you changed, but I would make sure the following is set to Never. You can go to System Preferences > Energy Saver > Computer Sleep > Never. I would also uncheck, "Put the hard disks to sleep when possible".

If you have done that, I would try and use a program called Caffeine. It keeps your computer from going to sleep. It has a wide range of times it can be active for. I use it a lot when I'm downloading large files and the computer needs to up for an extended amount of time.
