    As soon as my computer sleeps followliker ceases to work. I can't sit in front of my computer all day to keep it running. I have a mac if that helps.

    I've got one more question. In my activity log it keeps saying:

    Retrieving data for user
    Success retrieving data for user
    Account statistics updated successfully.

    FL isn't liking or following anyone. It's been doing this for a few hours. Sorry if this is a silly question I'm new to all of this bot stuff.

    You don't necessarily have to sit in front of a computer (Mac) to make it run - it's a computer, tell it what to do.
    E.g. disable the auto sleep function.

    As for FL not doing anything, what are your settings?

    Some that have had problems just shut down FL and restart. Seems to "fix" any bugs.

    I'd just recommend using a VPS, costs like $10 /month and can run followliker on it 24/7, without running your computer.

    What I do is run a few movies in a loop to keep my computer from going into a sleep mode.

    Dude, just set the computer alarm to auto-wake it when it goes to sleep. LOL

    Really, just do a google search for setting your computer to not go to sleep. It's easy. Usually just adjust the power settings. Do a google search for your specific computer and you'll get step by step instructions.

    Or, just buy a separate alarm for your computer!

    I have an extra question:
    I set my mac so he can't go to sleep .. But do I also have to do this for the screen not going black/falling asleep?

    Thanks!
