Prevent Windows 7 PC from sleeping while a download is in progress

While I'm downloading a large file on Windows 7 using Google Chrome, my computer goes to sleep. I could obviously set the computer to not sleep at all (or change the interval before the computer sleeps).

"For Firefox, you can install the No Sleep Download extension. It prevents your computer from going to sleep while downloading files.

Also, Free Download Manager, which integrates with Firefox, Opera, Chrome, IE, among other browsers, has a feature to prevent the computer from going into standby / sleep mode while it is downloading a file."
