cap 3 way switch

I need to temporarily remove a 3 way switch for a week or two. I think it is the switch that does not have constant power.

What happens if i cap the wiring and restore power? Will the light be constant on or not?

If you need to temporarily remove one 3 way switch where there are two in use......
Mark the common wire. Connect the common and one traveler together.
Cap off the other traveler. The other switch will operate the light.
