(a Mac with the DOS compatibility card), the Energy Saver features can prevent you from accessing the Mac side. If you stay in the DOS environment longer than the time set in Energy Saver, the Energy Saver features will shut down the monitor on the Mac side. When you try to switch back to the Mac side, the monitor will not wake up, forcing you to restart the machine. You should set the monitor sleep time to "never" when using a DOS compatible machine." This is not specific to Mac OS 8.
