For example iTunes prevents Mac going to sleep mode. Please add this important enhancement also to Cyberduck. Otherwise it's always necessary to put sleep mode from e.g. 15 minutes to never when doing large unattended uploads.

There must be a default OSX function for this, this is what happens when iTunes does something, easily identified by PID delivered by pmset, after iTunes finished it's work, prevention will go off:
