Actually, it seems pretty easy, relatively speaking.

It looks like adding a call to
   SetThreadExecutionState(ES_SYSTEM_REQUIRED)
each time a work unit is dispatched in the renderer should be enough, as 
long as at least one of those work units is going to finish before the sleep 
timer runs out. Adding in ES_CONTINUOUS might be good, but you'd want to 
take care that you don't fail to clear that at the end of the render, too. 
Probably safer to keep telling it you're awake than to tell it to stay awake 
until further notice.

HTH!
