This topic was introduced in E-Prime 18.104.22.168.
E-Prime 2.0 introduced the Rte.PreventSystemIdle method. Rte.PreventSystemIdle accepts a boolean value. By default, this value is assigned to 'Yes'.
This method attempts to avoid the experiment computer from going into screen saver or sleep mode during an experiment session. When enabled, the runtime client will make an effort to prevent the system from powering down or invoking a screen saver. This setting cannot overcome default group policy settings by a network administrator.
