 Q: My Chromebook is stuck in night mode
 A: Sometimes Chromebooks will get stuck in this "nighttime" mode.  The solution to this problem is to simply shut the Chromebook all the way down, wait 5 minutes, and then sign in again.  When you get back into Chrome, close all open tabs and start fresh. (High School Chromebooks do not have a night-mode).
