I have a Macbook. Running 10.6.8 OS.

Energy Preferences for both Computer & Screen set to "Never" hard disk to sleep is "Unchecked" When I am away from computer say for 30-45 minutes, I come back to my log-in screen, type in password and the desk top, messenger outlook ect have to reload. (Running Office for Mac 2011). How do I keep these applications running? (So they don't go to sleep)?

Thanks,

Joe

I think what you are looking for is an app call Caffeine which is available from the App Store.

Thank You!

What I do with my iMac and others I know do with their MBP's is to let the system sleep and then wake it up to continue using it. That is, I have applications running and then I walk away, the screensaver kicks in about 15 mins later and then the system goes to sleep some time after and when I return I click on the trackpad and I continue doing whatever I was doing in whatever applications are open..nothing is closed or anything..

My friends with MBP's do the same except they close the lid to conserve battery power and when they return they open the lid and continue on.

Having to re-login means that your system isn't sleeping but rather actually crashing and rebooting or crashing and logging out..
