A free utility I've been using for years for this situation is PleaseSleep.

It is customizable so you can have it run in your menubar or as a floating panel. You can enable logging and choose what to log. You can have it force sleep only when particular apps are running. You can also set it up to NOT force sleep when particular apps are running, such as your backup apps, repair apps, video editing apps, anything you wish. You can also set it up to force sleep anyway at a particular time of the day.

It's donationware. It works flawlessly.
