It would be great if Amphetamine could activate for Time Machine Backups

One of the main reasons I use amphetamine (and previously caffeine) was to allow my computer to complete large time machine backups. However, I would like my computer to go to sleep after this backup is complete. While I know that "theoretically" power naps should allow this to occur on mac books, my experience thus far is that it doesn't (the backup stops and takes days to complete). I would like to start a large backup or initial back-up, go to sleep, and have my computer sleep after the backup is completed.

    Amphetamine 4 will include a new Trigger to activate a session whenever a specified volume or drive is mounted. I think this should allow you to keep your Mac awake while the Time Machine volume is mounted.
