    I'm testing the battery and I want to make it always stay on, no sleep, no nothing.

    How do I do that?

    Under ENERGY SAVER

    I made my display never go to sleep.
    I unchecked the box " put hard disk to sleep when possible"

    What else can I do?

    I left my computer on and woke up...and it looks like it went to sleep ...because when i moved the mouse around, it turned on the dislay and it had to reconnect to the internet....

    This is one area Apple makes it so UN-intuitive.

    With a Wintel machine, this is very easy, you select the drop down to never sleep and Wintel does exactly what you tell it to, I don't understand why Apple makes it so difficult.

    Probably because for 99.9% of people, the way it normally works is the right way. Apple has a tendency to make things dead-simple for normal usage, and fairly challenging for things that are a bit out of the norm.
