Windows 7: Hotspot for disabling sleep

Hotspot for disabling sleep

Is there an app, or setting, I can use to hotspot a corner to disable sleep?

I sometimes have things I need to run/download overnight, and the apps aren't preventing Windows 7 from sleeping. So I need to do it manually, preferably without going thru the route of manually altering the power settings.

Google searches on hot spot corner disable sleep or the mixes aren't tuning up much.

Found powercfg -h, but that's for hibernate. I'm looking for sleep.

Hello Guice,

If you like, you could setup two different power plans. One with sleep disabled, and one with sleep enabled. Afterwards, you could use the tutorial below to create shortcuts that you could place where you like to toggle between power plans to use for this. :)
