Presenter Mode

UNW's 10 minute workstation lockout policy from inactivity does not apply to machines being used for presentation purposes.  In addition to pre-exempted machine category groups (i.e. classroom computers and audio production machines), other Windows systems also can be automatically recognized as a presentation computer, depending on which application is pulled up on that machine.

Automatic Detection

Applications that are recognized as presenter applications are listed below.  While these are running, the operating system is in "Presenter Mode", preventing machine timeout when these applications are in focus:

  • PowerPoint
  • Videos being displayed in a web browser
  • Zoom meetings
  • Microsoft Teams meetings
