    Hi there,

    I'm looking to process some data overnight and want to prevent sleep mode kicking in until the processing is complete. Can anyone think of a way to do this?

    Many thanks,

    Can't you go into the System Preferences and set sleep/screen saver to "never"?

    Does it not just keep processing anyway?

    I leave my machine doing overnight 3D renders regularly, and while the screen turns off, the renders for sure keep going without any intervention from me.

    If for some reason it doesn't work like that for you, just click the "energy saver" tab in System Preferences and move the slider to "never."
