I know iTunes can do this sooooo:

Many's the time I've returned to my computer expecting a long render to have completed but finding the computer went to sleep.

BUT, when I play music out of iTunes w/no keyboard or mouse interaction, the computer does not go to sleep.

SO, a nice feature would be if LW or Screamernet is rendering, the computer does NOT go to sleep.

Well... why not keep iTunes running in the background as your render goes on then?
Not sure if there are any disadvantages to that though but works well for me with no probs.

Clever. Does it have to be playing (even if w/the sound off)?

That's an OK workaround, but still isn't automatic. Whatever it is iTunes is doing to keep the computer awake, I'd like LW+SN to do automatically.
