How to keep cyberpets alive and be good in class

7th November 1997 at 00:00
I am 10 years old and my name is Todd. I have a cyberpet and most schools have banned them. I had a lot of trouble taking care of it. No doubt other children who have cyberpets would, too.

I have researched cyberpets and figured out a way to switch them off without killing them for a period of up to 12 hours. For all those people who are desperate to keep them alive without being told off, here are five simple instructions on how to do it: 1 Get on to the "clock" function.

2 Press button 1 and 2.

3 When the word "Set" appears, press button 1 to change hour and button 2 to change minute.

4 Your cyberpet must go to sleep every night at around 9 pm. If you make sure it's satisfied, then set the clock to around 10 minutes before it goes to sleep at night. Make sure you have set it to PM. Do this before school, switch off its light and it will remain happy for 12 hours.

5 To wake up: repeat the above but set to AM not PM.

This method works on most cyberpets. I hope this helps people keep their pets alive.
