prevent computer sleep during restore

Post by coffee1978 »

While doing a very large restore in Backuup4All 8.9, my computer went to sleep for several hours. No real issue except it delayed the restore by that amount of time. The app should (optionally?) prevent computer sleep during such operations.

To allow the restore to continue uninterrupted, I am running Insomnia (https://dlaa.me/Insomnia/)

FYI, if the app already has this function, it is not holding any locks to prevent sleep:

PS C:\Windows\system32> powercfg /requests
DISPLAY:
None.

SYSTEM:
[PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume\xxx\32-bit\Insomnia.exe

AWAYMODE:
None.

EXECUTION:
None.

PERFBOOST:
None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN:
None.

Hi,

Backup4all prevents the computer going to sleep during the backup.
I made a ticket to extend that feature for restore process too.
