Send computer to sleep at boundary

This is a setting that tells your Mac to enter sleep mode if you step out of a self set boundary.

To set the ‘boundary’ click the Setup Boundary button located within the “Send computer to sleep at boundary heading” within settings on the application located on the Mac. You will then receive an alert on your iPhone telling you to go to the border of your boundary (we recommended 1-6m away from the Mac) and then press THE button.

This is to calculate the lower boundary of where your iPhone has to be located before the application triggers the Sleep Function.

The iPhone will then begin pulsing out its orange ripples for 20 seconds while the iPhone calculates the distance from the laptop.

We suggest you move around on the boundary line for a second or two during this period. Your iPhone will see you and send a message that your boundary is successfully set. What's measured in the setting of 'Set up Boundary' is the distance between your iPhone and your Mac.

After configuration you can then chose whether to enable this function by setting the Send to sleep radio button on or off on the current settings page. The iPhone app must be open when this setting is on. If you change your mind, and want to decrease or increase the line of the boundary, you can do so at will, by repeating the process specified above.

Please bear in mind; following a period where your Mac has enjoyed its snooze and you've returned to use it, you will have to turn it back on for the Mac to react to you parting from it again.
