***Each lesson in this course has a 50 minute timer (as mandated by the Texas Department of Agriculture) that must expire before a link to the test magically appears at the bottom of the lesson.***
If your computer goes to sleep, it will stop the lesson timer. With this in mind, it is best to turn off the sleep mode in your computer settings prior to beginning a course of ours.
Most computers have the sleep mode preset to kick in after 10 to 15 minutes of inactivity. If you do not know how to turn off your computer’s sleep mode, this is fine. Just be sure to let your computer know you are there by tapping a key on the keyboard or moving your mouse ever 8 to 9 minutes.
