When you are at the computer it’s a setting that closes down in a certain length of Tim. Need to know how to get to this settings.
Mac Support Specialist: Ashik, Mac Technician replied 3 months ago

If you are referring to sleep settings, then click on the Apple icon, select System Preferences > Energy Saver. You will find the sleep options there. Scheduled sleep option can also be found in Energy Saver option.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
