Hi my friends, have you ever encountered problems during movie ripping/converting, like computer logging off automatically?
Here is a brief guide of how to leave your computer working even if you leave the house.
Part 1. Mac guide: how to prevent computer from sleeping automatically
Here we have a Macbook at hand, OS X: 10.8 (Mountain Lion).
Firstly hit the Apple icon on top left corner, choose â€œSystem Preferencesâ€.
And then click â€œSecurity & Privacyâ€:
In that folder, if there is a check by â€œlog off if no activity for 60 minutesâ€, just uncheck it.
So it's done.
Part 2. Windows guide: change â€œwhen computer sleepsâ€ to â€œNeverâ€
Firstly hit the start icon (you know how to find it lol), find â€œControl Panelâ€.
Change â€œView byâ€ (on top right corner) to â€œLarge iconsâ€, and then choose â€œPower Optionsâ€.
In â€œPower Optionsâ€ window, you can find â€œChange when the computer sleepsâ€ on the left side bar:
Here we get it: change the second settings â€œPut the computer to sleepâ€ to â€œNeverâ€.
Okay itâ€™s all done; now you can leave your computer working very hard to rip your movie to wanted video format.
