Have you tried adjusting energy saver in Systems Prefs?

No. My settings are the same/default. Have top 3 of 4 options checked in the bottom of the pane.
Compressor should keep the Mac awake while its processing. I'd rather not have my Mac runnning 24/7, some of my batches are 6 - 8hrs, so they are done overnight. Both my Macs (actually 3 of them) ran until the job was done, then slept. Now, they just sleep after the same default 15 mins. Rendering in FCP 7 or X is unaffected, ie; it runs until done, which is odd.
What would you have me adjust it the Enegry Saver settings to? I've tried setting the disk to NOT sleep, and that does not help either.

Haven't heard of this odd behavior on ML. (Although I remember running into it many years ago in the PPC days. No memory, however of how it was resolved.) How about Compressor 3.5? Do your machines stay awake for the older version?

I have met this exactly same problem after upgrading from compressor 3.5 to 4 in ML. I have googled and there is no solution.
