I use W7 on a ThinkPad, with hybrid sleep enabled. Sleep/hibernate work as expected without Blender.
When Blender application is loaded (i.e. the application has been launched, but is not rendering anything), the computer never enters sleep mode, ignoring sleep timers. The display is off, but fan air is hot, an indication of a sustained CPU/GPU use.
Is there some Blender documentation about this? Is there a solution to prevent it?
I'm aware of how to pause the Blender process, but my question is different.
