It would be nice if there was on option in jBid to stop the computer going to sleep if a snipe is doing to fire. I may be done with an option for the number of hours like “if jBid is going ti snipe in x hours (4, 8, 12, 24) then prevent the computer going to sleep / hybernate)”

OTOH, I don’t know if Windows permits this (like "__I__ am the boss and I tell when to go to sleep ;) )

I can’t say for sure, but I suspect it would be very difficult for JBidWatcher to do that. Blocking a sleep response is probably very different for Windows, OSX, Linux, BSD, and/or Solaris, and JBidWatcher is running as Java code; I would be surprised if there was some standard Java function that connected up to the OS’s underlying power management/sleep system.
