    Have you tried adding a request override for srvnet ?
    I have and that does fix the problem. However I do need srvnet requests to not be overridden because I have other computers that stream content off of this problematic computer from time to time. With the request overridden the computer will shut off in the middle of serving media. lol

    In Power Options / Multimedia settings / When sharing media, have you tried using Prevent idling to sleep ?
    For me this override and setting works, ymmv.
    For me, if something is playing, it continues playing until it ends, then the pc sleeps (if nothing else is playing/streaming).

    Thanks for the suggestion David. The problem isn't that it goes to sleep when sharing media (it doesn't), the problem is the computer NEVER going to sleep unless I override srvnet.
