I start an overnight render.  I wake up the next morning, expecting a beautiful,
polished image.

Instead, the damn machine has gone into sleep mode!

Sleep mode is good. It saves power.

BUT NOT WHILE THE COMPUTER IS IN THE MIDDLE OF A TASK.

Someone recently mentioned the principle of least surprise in p.o-t.  Micro$hit
seems adamantly opposed to the whole concept.
