  5. In the Control Panel -> System and Security -> Power Options -> Choose when to turn off the display: select 'never' when computer is plugged in
  6. Also we recommend: Unpin from the Task Bar all programs. Uninstall unnecessary computer programs. Hide all icons from the desktop by moving them into a folder.
  7. Also we recommend: Uninstall any program such as virus scanner that may prompt the computer for updates. Virus scanner is not needed if the computer is only used for check-in.
