Power plan management for Windows 7 use as a home server
I'm using my home desktop as a server machine. I use Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit a printer is connected and it's setup with sabnzb for downloads.
I want to be able to print on this printer using my laptop. Unfortunately, the server goes on sleep or hibernation and I must turn on the server to get the print out. I also don't want to keep sabnzbd from downloading when downloads are available.
What is the best setup for a power management plan to keep the power consuption minimal but to stay up (or in network listenig mode) if I want to print or download something?
I just did a new One called "Windows 7 as a Server" The advanced power Options are Sleep Sleep after : 300 minute (5 hours) Allow Hybrid sleep : on Hibernate after : Never Allow Wake Timer : Enable
Would this do what I want/need?

all the options listed will make the computer none responsive and require you to turn the computer back on.
Ok that's what I don't want. How can I get it to do what I need?
