It basically does the same thing that media players typically do when you watch a video, only they often don't do the same thing for audio.

Stuff like long flash videos, or pandora radio, or pretty much any browser based audio, typically doesn't disable monitor shut off or sleep, so you have to use some other means. I came up with this idea while I was trying to play some ambiance while working on my homework, and got tired of having to screw with the power management settings. About 15 minutes later, I had a working program, and I thought I'd share it.
Want to listen to audio without your computer going to sleep? Try this.

Core i7 2600k 4.4Ghz 1.385v | Corsair H60 | 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 8-8-8-24 | MSI P67A-G45 | OCZ Vertex 3 | Sapphire 7850 OC to Max settings
