Windows 7: Sleep after recording?

Besides, you wouldn't want to pause the TV and have the PC go to sleep in 3 minutes, would you?
If a recording is ongoing, the comp doesn't go into sleep mode.
I tried that last night.

True, but it will go to Away mode, if Away mode is allowed. I have mine set to start displaying the Media Center screen saver (photo gallery) after 10 minutes, and then another 10 minutes it turns off the display, and another 10 minutes it goes to standby/away.

This works well to protect my plasma TV from burn-in when the TV is paused/stopped.

Just thought I'd give a final update:

The comp was going to sleep ( not during a recording) but if I was converting a video file.
I went to settings in Advanced, and changed to "Away" and now if anything is occurring, the comp will not sleep until the process is finished.

I tried numerous test recordings and conversions, and the comp recorded and at end went to sleep and woke up to record another one.

I know this is contrary to many suggestions ( and I appreciate them all) but this seems to be the only thing that works for me.

When it boots, it shows a...
