After running the presentation for a while, my screen turns off. How can I get it to run all day?
If you find that your screen keeps turning off after a time of no usage (other than the presentation running), it’s likely the computer has gone into “sleep” mode.

"Sleep" mode is a configuration that saves power if the keyboard or mouse is not used for a period of time. For the program to run for a full day without your computer entering sleep mode, you need to change the power options. This adjustment has to be done only once. Follow the directions below to update your power options or speak with your IT department.

For computers running Microsoft Windows:
- Go to the Control Panel
- Click “Hardware and Sound”
- Click “Power Options”
- Change when the computer sleeps

For Apple Computers:
- Go to the Apple menu
- Click “System Preferences”
- Click “Energy Saver”
- Change setting on Energy Saver

For Chrome:
- Find the free extension called “Keep Awake”
- Click “enable” on this extension
