Request for new feature: Virtual Router preventing computer to go standby

First of all: What a great program this is!

Only I've encountered one (small) drawback. Normally my laptop goes in standby after some time. Only when running Virtual Router is unwanted. I know I can change the computer settings to prevent the standby, but it would be way nicer if Virtual Router would do that for me. In the same way a mediaplayer also prevents the computer from terminating.

I would say it should be a check box, so user have the simple choice if VR prevents standby or not.

I already found that it should possible, only I lack the programming skills to implement it :-( ;

Are there more people missing this option?
