After running the presentation for a while, my screen turns off. How can I get it to run all day?

Computers are often configured to go into a "sleep" mode to save power if the keyboard or mouse is not used for a period of time. The result is that your monitor or television may appear to turn off after The Intelligent Option has been running for a period of time. To allow the program to run for a full day, the power options will need to be adjusted. This adjustment has to be done only once, after which it will be retained.  You can follow the directions below to fix it yourself or speak with your IT department.

The variety of operating systems and versions makes it very difficult to provide step-by-step instructions for adjusting power options for your specific computer.

With Microsoft Windows, the power options can often be adjusted by going to Control Panel --> Hardware and Sound --> Power Options --> Change when the computer sleeps. The time before dimming the display, turning off the display, and putting the computer to sleep can all be changed to never.

With Mac OS, the sleep option can often be adjusted by going to Apple menu --> System Preferences --> Energy Saver.

With Chrome, a free extension called Keep Awake can be enabled that will keep the screen from going into a sleep mode.

I have other questions. How can I get them answered?
