Computer sleeps mid-render

The computer is scheduled to sleep when unused for 30 minutes. Today I racked up a bunch of renders for it to do and went to lunch. When I came back the machine was asleep, and on wake I found the machine had slept with several more in the queue to go. The queue restarted without intervention, which is good.


But, AME should alert the OS that it's busy and prevent sleep until the last job in the queue is finished.



Steps to reproduce:
    1. Set machine to sleep after a period of unuse

2. Start a render queue that will last longer than the above period
Result: ... Machine sleeps without finishing queue
Expected: ... Machine to sleep AFTER finishing queue


PS. I do not expect to use the "Auto Computer Shutdown" feature since I sleep the machine rather than shut it down. That way it does updates automatically, and it spins up faster. Would be good to have a sleep option alongside the shutdown option.
