Confirm sleep after backup?

When a scheduled backup failed to run last night (not sure why - something about a connection error), I started the backup manually and went about my work. A few minutes later, in the middle of composing an email, my iMac appeared to crash suddenly - everything went dark. I was startled for a moment but then realized what had happened. The backup job I'd started manually was configured to sleep the Mac after it was complete.

No damage was done -- the Mac woke back up right where I was -- but it was still pretty disruptive. May I suggest that SD show a 10-second countdown dialog (with a cancel button) before it puts the system to sleep?
