Sometimes I want to only temporary prevent the sleep of the computer. E.g. during a big download.
I use the starmessage screensaver ( http://starmessagesoftware.com/moonscreensaver/ ) that has an option to prevent the sleep for the next 2 or 8 hours or permanently.
I use 2 or 8 hours, so that I do not need to revisit the window's settings to change it back.
This is the benefit for doing this via the sceensaver. You only set it once and you do not need to revert it afterwards.
By the way the screensaver has both a windows and mac version, so you can prevent the sleep on either platform.
