I've a small problem with ERC, if I go away from keyboard for a while, it automatically disconnects the channels I've logged into and when I reopen emacs, it reconnects to the channels automatically. But I do not want this to happen. I want the erc channels to be kept alive even if I'm, away for any period of time. How can I achieve this?

ps. I'm on macOS Sierra

    Is your computer going to sleep? A computer that is asleep cannot maintain any tcp connections, so your connection to the irc server would be closed. – db48x Dec 24 '16 at 15:41
  • If I stop my computer from going to sleep will it solve this problem? – Chakravarthy Raghunandan Dec 24 '16 at 15:52
  • That's correct. – db48x Dec 24 '16 at 20:36
