Sleep after download?

Is there anyway to change the power management so that windows 7 will go to sleep when all downloads are finished? I was pre-loading borderlands last night before i went to bed and I woke up this morning and it had gone to sleep because I had forgot to change the power management, Is there anyway to keep the power on until all files are downloaded and then have it sleep after a set time after that?

Are you using Internet Explorer to download? If your using FireFox then theres this add-on that lets you do just that Auto Shutdown - InBasic Try that if you're on FireFox, I'm not sure about IE.....
