    My mac goes to sleep (goes black) and then my other pc's/laptops can't see it etc.

    Is there a way to not turn it off.

    I want specifically to keep it on so my LIve book duo can be accessed to be able to copy files to it.

    it seems like once it goes dark I can't get to it (this also occurs when my mac air goes to sleep, my mack can't get to it).

    There must be a setting somewhere.

    Escape from New England
    System Preferences > Energy Saver > Slide the slider to Never for Computer Sleep.

    Also, if you go to System Preferences and type in sleep in the search box it will highlight preference panes that apply to your search term.
