Macbook keep sleeping

Hey all,

I have a macbook pro, purchased fall 2016 running Sierra. I have downloads that I'd like to run overnight, but my computer keeps going to sleep. I feel like I have all the settings correct - have a look at the attached screenshot of my energy saver settings. I do have a hot corner for putting the display to sleep, but one wouldn't think this causes the entire computer to sleep. Any ideas as to what may be going on?
