Default Changing Standby Conditions?

Vista auto-standby's after a period of inactivity now, and thats alright if Im not downloading, but if I leave a download up, it standby's and kills my downloads. Any way to have it not standby if there's > 5% network usage, or something like that?

Yeah, cutting the auto-sleep will do fine. When I installed Vista, some of the files were corrupt, and some wern't even there, and that was one option that couldn't be disabled.
