    This is extremely annoying when I upload multiple videos to YouTube. My iMac falls asleep and the videos fail to upload and I am forced to restart the process all over again.

    On the other hand, my MacBook Pro does not fall asleep if I upload videos to YouTube. Both computer have the same Energy Saving options:

    And ideas why this would happen?

    no, no idea. But I suggest installing Caffeine, and activating it whenever you need to upload a video or something similar.

    Good Luck!
