I want my MacAir to remain on throughout the day but recently I've done something (I guess) that causes it to quit after several minutes of non-activity. What have I done and how do I undo it?

What do you mean by it quits? Sounds like what is happening is the Mac is just going to sleep. You can adjust the power settings in system preferences. I also would take a look at Caffeine in the Mac App Store.

I use Caffeine and like it full cup stays on till I click it then cup is empty and regular power settings take over its a must have if you have to constantly walk away from your computer throughout the day in a secure environment.

To Lbatson21. When I say quitting I mean I get a dialogue box that says "Do you want to close your applications and quit now?" and it quits. This is a relatively new phenomenon, so I must have done something to cause it. I have extended the energy saver in the Preferences to no avail.

Yea. That is something I've never run into. Have you installed any type of application that might be causing this? Also, when is the last time you can remember it working properly. Also make sure in energy saver preferences you don't have it scheduled to shut down at a certain time. (You can check that by selecting the schedule button.) As a last ditch effort, if you have a Time Machine backup you can roll back to the time when it functioned properly. I don't know what could really cause this and when I searched for anything similar I wasn't able to find anything. Maybe someone else might have a better answer...

I installed a app to improve (?) my ISP performance and have since uninstalled it. The last time it worked properly was about a week ago. I have extended the energy saver to "never". Schedule is default. No Time Machine. I have extended the "Desktop and Screensaver" in the Preferences to "never" which seems to have helped a bit.
