Prevent Windows from sleeping when Spotify Premium is playing

This seems like a simple bug fix that people have been requesting for 2 years. (Lots of requests around the interwebs).

This is only a problem in Spotify Premium. I'm assuming the ads were keeping Windows awake.

Please fix!

C'mon, Spotify team! EVERY music player do it already! This is a default behaviour in desktop applications of this kind! Why the users should change the sleeping behaviour or has to use third-party apps just to achieve this?

 

Here is something that may help you with this (as anyone can find simple googling it):

You don't even need to be an expert developer to know how to use the Windows API and deliver this functionality.

 

Hope it can be seen in Spotify very soon.

Yes please, this would be such a handy feature. And I guess, it isn't hard to code, either. If Windows Media Player can it, you can do, too :)

Why has this issue sat on the back burnder for so long?  I feel like this is the least reponsive support team I've ever heard of for such a major platform.  I love my music, but the UI problems are hard to swallow.

This is a huge problem with Spotify on W8.  I can't see any value in using Spotify until this bug is fixed.  Is there any intent or timeline for Spotify to correct this with a new app or an option built into the existing ?????

Please implement this. It's the most annoying thing to have to change the power settings every single time I use Spotify!
