Welcome to the iMovie Discussion.
As Beverly said, resetting sleep in System Preferences should do the trick.
Note that the task of burning a DVD will not prevent the Mac from going to sleep when the no-sleep interval is past. It is your mouse clicks and key strokes that prevent it from sleeping, not processor activity.
So as Beverly says, you may have to set it to Never.
Another sleep-related thing.
Our Macs perform housekeeping tasks in the wee hours of the morning. Some housekeeping tasks are done every day, some every week, some every month.
When we allow our Macs to sleep every night, the housekeeping doesn't get done, which is not a good thing.
Either don't let your Mac sleep at night or get third-party software like Cocktail, which lets you perform the housekeeping when YOU want. Essentially, it lets you tell the Mac "do the housekeeping NOW." You can do that manually or schedule (the paid-for version of) Cocktail to do it for you.
