Hi

I have set up a simple scalping bot which works fine until my iMac goes into sleep mode, then it stops firing bets into the market, is there anything I can do to rectify it.

Thanks and apologies for noob question

Yes, turn off sleep mode when trading.

I don't use Macs but for Microsoft Windows I believe software has to be specifically written to recognise events and 'wake' the computer to function in sleep mode.

You will also end up with screen burn.

You can put the monitors to sleep quickly without turning the computer off.

If you want to run a strategy 24x7 then maybe consider a VPS

Screen burn really isn't the problem it used to be. Monitors and TVs use things like pixel shifting to help prevent it. It's why the channel logo doesn't burn in even if you watch one TV channel all day. Logos and gaming with fixed graphic elements drove the need for a solution but I wouldn't like to guarantee that on budget gear. Off is always best though.
