Overview This project will prevent the system from sleeping when run.
Description There are plenty of ways of preventing a PC from sleeping or hibernating. The problem with most of them is that they require your user to remember to turn them on when running LabVIEW. If you just set the PC to never sleep then it will never go to sleep but what you really want is for it only to stay awake when collecting data with your LabVIEW program. Or you could run a third-party program like Caffiene to prevent the PC from sleeping, but this has the same problem.
Windows has an elegant way to deal with this, they are called Power Availability Requests. have you noticed that your PC never goes to sleep when watching a video? These are Power Availability Requests in action. You can make you LabVIEW program behave the same way. Requirements
LabVIEW 2012 (or compatible)
Windows 7 or above
