    Hi Steve, Congrats,

    RE: Q 1,

    Click the Apple at left in the top menu.

    Click on System Preferences.

    Click on Energy Saver.

    Have a look in there and you should be able to sort it.

    1. Preferences > Energy Saver > Customize Settings

    2. Change settings in energy saver of when to log off/sleep automaticaly

    3. Its best to run it down, than charge it up, it you do keep it plugged in though remember to calibrate it every month.

    4. Preferneces > Displays > Change it

    5. Change it back?
