As you are probably aware, Mac has a great feature that allows the device to start hibernating when the user is inactive. This mode saves energy. In order to get your Mac out of this mode, all you have to do is to move the mouse or press any key on your keyboard. However, if you want to prevent Mac from going to sleep in the first place, you should follow our guide.
- Start by clicking the black Apple logo in the top left corner. This is where you will find the Systems Preferences tab (on the drop-down menu).
- The next thing that you should do is to click the Energy Saver button. If you are using a Mac laptop you will have two options – battery and power adapter. Use the same settings for both of them.
- After that, you will notice the Computer Sleep slider. This is the place when you can select the time when you want your display or computer to go to sleep. Of course, you can select Never too.
- It is worth mentioning that you can choose a different setting for the display and for the computer itself. By checking the Prevent computer from sleeping automatically when the display is off, you will prevent a complete sleep mode when the display is hibernating.
- In addition, you can uncheck the box related to hard disk sleep. This way, your Mac will never go to a full sleep mode.
