Common scenario :

1. My computer is set to go to sleep after ~10 minutes of inactivity. In most cases, this seems to be a good default.
2. I attempt to upload a large file to a website (e.g. a video to YouTube). This takes 30 minutes or more.
3. I do not stay in front of my computer the whole time.
4. After ~10 minutes of upload, the computer goes to sleep, canceling the upload.
5. Frustration.

I believe that we should find a way to perform OS-specific tricks to prevent the computer from going to sleep during the upload of a large blob.
