May 21, 2016 Ryan Murphy

We recommend  to change the default Power Options on your device when taking a secure exam to prevent your device from entering hibernation during the assessment. This may cause issues returning to the exam. 

  1. Click on the Apple menu bar and select 'System Preferences'.
    System Preferences
  2. Select 'Energy Saver' from the System Preferences window              Mac System Preferences
  3. Click the Power Adapter tab and then move the slider beside 'Computer Sleep' to "Never" and un-check 'Put the hard disk to sleep whenever possible'.
