Preventing sleep when HD Wiper active
I am running a HD wiper (Active Killdisk) on an external USB drive and the wipe can sometimes take many hours. The problem is that Win 7 ignores this fact and goes to sleep after its normal 30 minutes and the process pauses until I wake up the machine.
Is there something I need to set to tell Win 7 to stay awake when this kind of task is running without having to change the Power scheme?
Thanks in advance for any help.
