View Full Version : wake for scheduled download

Can you provide a way to wake the computer and then have it stay awake until download is complete. I use satellite internet (Hughes.net) and I usually let my computer go to sleep after an hour of inactivity. DownloadStudio won't wake the computer to use Hughes.net's unlimited downloads time frame (1:00 am to 7:00 am CST). Even if I schedule something else to wake the computer so that it is awake when the download manager is scheduled to start, the computer goes back to sleep before large downloads complete. Any suggestions to work around this besides changing my "sleep" setting for every download.

It is possible to add this feature, we will look at the possibility of introducing it for DownloadStudio 7.0.

I use a great program: http://www.dennisbabkin.com/php/download.php?what=WOSB that does what DownloadStudio should incorporate into it's features. It wakes up the computer and then keeps it from going on standby based upon a schedule and settings.

I've let the creator know about how his program could help DownloadStudio
