PC with 7, sleeps after I sleep.

Well, literally.

I put few torrents on Azureas Vuze when I go to sleep. I used to use uTorrent before but I can't now..
So, what happens is when I make wake up in the morning, I see the PC power button off, when I press the power button, it resumes from sleep and everything is loaded just the way I left, the Azureas is downloading but without much progress from yesterday night.

What seems to be the problem ? I want PC to run when the torrent is running, but if its not and everything is idle, it should go to sleep as usual.

I particularly donīt know if that is possible. But what I usually do is that I put in power options to "never" and on the torrent I select Auto Shutdown -> WHen downloads completes Hybernate or Standby mY computer.

I guess you must do this manually each time you are about to see torrents.

OR, you can leave Windows Media Player playing a repetitive song or playlist or whatever (the point is that keeps playing the whole night) and when you want to stop downloading torrents you just close it. (Obviously you mute it first)
