Disable system sleep when Generator works

As long as I see now system can go sleeping when updates are being downloaded. It is worth to prevent this.

It should not go to sleep. It now allows the screen to blank, but won't request the (unknown to the user) password anymore.

@boco:
This topic is about UpdateGenerator, not UpdateInstaller. The latter creates and uses a temporary power scheme, the former does not.

Honestly, I don't see the need to change anything in this regard in UpdateGenerator or the related batch scripts. If you're using a mobile device, you should know that letting the device go to sleep could interrupt the download operation. And, it's really easy to temporarily switch to another power scheme/profile, e.g. before starting the download (can even be scripted and added to InitializationHook.cmd(t) if necessary).

@Dalai: Sorry, I muddled up the topics, there are multiple about the subject now.

Don't worry. We all mix something up from time to time :).

I don't use a mobile device. With the default power sheme (30 min before go sleeping), Generator doesn't have enough time to complete its job. I believe this is surely a reason to change its behavior. Switching power scheme every time isn't a good way.
