How do I prevent my computer from going to sleep when displaying a wall?
If using one of our apps, like the Chrome App, you do not have to do anything. It will automatically prevent your computer’s screen from going to sleep whenever you have a wall loaded (it will not prevent it if you’re just on the search screen).
If you’re using a web browser, or you find that your computer does still go to sleep you can do one of the following:
- Right-click the desktop, and select Properties.
- Click the Screen Saver tab, and click the Power button near the bottom of the dialog box.
- Change the option next to “System Standby” to “Never” for “Plugged in” (since you should be running your Tweetwall on a computer plugged in). Click “Apply,” “OK” and “OK” once again to close the Display Properties dialog box.
- Click “Start,” and then select Control Panel.
- Click on Power Options
- Select High Performance under Additional Plans, and then click Change Plan Settings. Change all of the options to say Never.
- Click OK to save the changes
Mac OS X 10.7+
- Click the Apple menu, and select System Preferences.
- Click Energy Saver.
- Move the slider for Computer Sleep and the Display Sleep to Never.
- Close the window by clicking the red x in the top left corner.
- On Chrome OS, you do not need to do anything. The Tweetwall Chrome App will prevent your computer from going to sleep automatically, as long as a Tweetwall is active on the screen.
