Studio 10.2 and Big Sur

most people use omnis for business applications — many of which are point of sale/database ,etc.
this whole ‘green’ thing that lets applications and other things in the system sleep, in my mind works fine for non-point of sales apps put into the background.. but I want our omnis app to run, regardless.
so, no matter what, on OSX, when we install our omnis runtime, I do these commands to make sure it keeps running.
# prevent machine sleep
sudo pmset -a sleep 0
sudo pmset -a disksleep 0
# turn off app nap globally
defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSAppSleepDisabled -bool YES
the last one completely disables app nap. that way omnis never sleeps. neither does anything else, but then, on a point of sale machine…. You probably don’t want things to go to sleep.
also, with today's M1 mac’s — can run just about anything you throw at them.
just my opinion
