Prevent action when playing music like in Windows 11 Sleep

Hello.
I noticed that after the last cumulative updates of October 2023 in windows 11, when I listen to music from my browser or some other application, even if minimized, windows does not go to standby. Is it now possible to achieve something similar with Shutter?
Thank you

Shutter can prevent the system from entering a standby mode while it is actively monitoring events.

You can toggle this behaviour via: Options > Advanced > Prevent system sleep while activated.

Thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately, after trying it out, I see that what you are pointing me to is not, or in any case does not work as I would like. There is a possibility to prevent sleep if the system is playing sounds (listening to music or watching a movie). And this even if the application it is playing is even minimized (as in the case of music playback). I wondered if it was possible to achieve such a result with Shutter as well. But maybe not... In that case it would be a pity, it would be a good extra option.
