My mac loves to sleep, but I don't want it to. My energy saving settings are like so: am I missing something??? I wake up, my alarm not having turned on because my laptop has slept (with the power cord in), or sometimes I get an error as if it tried to sleep but a programme prevented it from doing so: I searched everywhere for a solution and thought when I found this link I was sorted. It seems not. All I want to do is leave my computer on, just with the display off so when I move my mouse it turns on the screen looking right at my desktop (or at least the password enter box for security).
