    Hi, My machine is 15" Mid-10 MacBook Pro.
    I'm trying to upload a large youtube video which takes a long time.
    In Preference, Energy, I set the computer to never goes to sleep when on power adapter. I also unchecked the 'put harddisk the sleep whenever possible'. I also have the computer plugged in. But the computer would suddenly goes to sleep despite me telling it to never goes to sleep.

    Check in console - do you have anything regarding a "Channel Exception" in there?

    It might not be going to sleep, it might be the graphics cutting out:

    Try using this app - 'Insomnia' to keep your computer on for longer. You can close your computer lid and it will keep it on if the app is open. I often use it when i'm in school and traveling from classroom to classroom and downloading apps or loading videos.
