Sleep Action Starting Unexpectedly

I have the events and actions set as shown in the list below.  When streaming media via Plex (this is installed on my Plex server) the PC will go to sleep after just a few minutes of streaming music.  I have 1080 sec for the network usage duration, but the PC falls asleep before 1080 sec.  If I stream a movie it seems to work better and does not fall asleep (presumably because the network traffic is higher).

Any thoughts on what is going wrong when I am streaming music?  I moved the upload to be below 10 KB/s to see if that will help.

Events [ALL]:
1) Network Usage: Upload below 10 KB/s for 1080 s
2) User Inactive: Inactive for 0:20:00
3) Process: Stops "makemkv.exe" check every 300 s
4) Process: Stops "HandBrake.exe" check every 300 s
5) Process: Stops "EAC.exe" check every 300 s
Actions:
1) Sleep

I am using 3.8.1 beta

Set "prevent system sleep while activated" in advanced options.

I made the change, and will report back if there are issues.  I assumed this setting would prevent the computer from sleeping even if the events were satisfied, but maybe not, we will see.

Thanks!

No, this option prevents only from going to sleep through the inactivity timer of the system. The user and applications can always send the system into hibernate or sleep mode.
