    Windows 8.1 HTPC goes to sleep while Plex is streaming

    While streaming to my Roku plex app my HTPC will go to sleep (flashing light on power button). I can wake it right back up via WOL but that's annoying. The media is stored on the same machine via three hard drives using drivepool. So the HTPC is not connecting to a NAS, all media is on the same machine. Is there a Windows 8.1 or plex setting i need to look at to keep the computer from going into sleep while a client is streaming? Thanks

Anyone use Windows 8 as a HTPC? what's your input setup?
I use a Logitech k400 Wireless keyboard with a built in trackpad. It's great in theory, but the implementation has a few flaws: The keys are small, and the trackpad is worthless, especially with Windows 8. I've been trying to find an alternative, but the only one I found is using apple inputsw...
