Windows 7: Is there a way to disable sleep while certain programs are running?

Is there a way to disable sleep while certain programs are running?

This is the best place I could think of for this question.
I'm looking for a way to keep my computer from sleep when I have certain programs from running.
I'm most likely looking for an application that runs in the background with a list of some sort, and if a program on that list is open, the computer will not sleep after the "1 hour" of inactive mouse use, that I have set in power options.

There is no setting in the programs I am using to stop sleep

Have a look at this thread (a program in karlsnook's post if none of the others make sense )

How do I prevent going to sleep with processes active?
