    Every couple days, my Mac Mini Plex Server is going off-line (TeamViewer). When I get home to check, the Sleep Indicator Light pulsates on and off slowly indicating that my computer is sleeping. When I view the screen, my computer is at the login screen asking for my password which I thought I had disabled.

    I am thinking I should just install Caffeine, but I'm concerned that my external HD is not going to sleep while running. Furthermore, I don't think I should have to run Caffeine....it should just not sleep based on my settings right?

    Here are the screen shots of my settings. Any ideas?

    Power fluctuations have been known to cause this too. Is the server on an ups?

    Ya. I have it in my server/AV rack so it shares a large UPS. Good ventilation too.

    Is there anything I can run to monitor what is going on
