So currently i'm sharing my internet connection through ethernet from the Toshiba to the Acer.

This however prevents the Toshiba from going to sleep:

I tried ControlPlane to add some rules to kill the internetsharing on sleep, and enable it on wake. This app gives an error unable to install helper:... when trying to put the laptop to sleep.


Is there a similar app which can automate this process? Or perhaps a simple script that can be triggered on sleep/wake? 


Thanks in advance.
