Don't Sleep 3.42
Temporarily prevent Windows from hibernating, sleeping, shutting down or restarting

Don't Sleep is a simple tool that will prevent your system from powering down, sleeping, hibernating, restarting and more.

Why bother? You could, of course, set up your PC to make sure this never happens, by setting the appropriate power settings. But this isn't always convenient. Most of the time you might be happy to have your system shut down after it's been idle for 5 minutes, say. If you occasionally need to use it to run presentations, though, then this could easily become annoying.

When you need to be sure that your PC stays on, then, just run Don't Sleep. The program will automatically prevent your PC from going into standby, hibernation, shutting down, launching the screensaver and more (though clearing a few boxes will allow you to configure exactly what it'll block, if you prefer).

You can also set the program to work for only a given period of time. So if you want to be sure the system will stay running until you get back from lunch, say, maybe because it's downloading a file or doing something else important, then simply set your return time, check "Use Timer" and you're ready to go.

A "To Tray" button then allows you to minimise the program to the system tray, so it doesn't waste taskbar space.

Or, if you'd like to tweak your Windows settings directly, then Don't Sleep's System menu provides easy access to your power plans, display settings, screensaver timeout and more.

New in version 3.42:
   - Small Improvements in Don't Sleep and update of the language files.

Verdict:

A very useful tool for quickly customising your PCs standby, hibernation and sleep behaviour

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
