    I'm not sure I fully understand what you're trying to say ... Do you mean the display / system goes to sleep?

    If your on a MacBook or MacBook Pro check your power settings, I'm not 100% sure but they could need tweeking. The only other thing I can think of for iMac/Mac Pro/Mini is that you can set certain areas of your screen, usually the corners to put your display to sleep. check your expose/spaces settings i think it is (not infront of my mac atm) and check your settings.

    Hope this helps, if not, then good luck finding the answer.
