Whoops, I completely failed to spot the 'Advanced' settings.
After a bit of experimentation, I've got it working nicely.
Thanks guys!

(For anyone interested, I ended up setting screensaver to 3 mins, blank
mode, then under advanced settings,
enabled power management and set standby/suspend/off times to 0/0/3 mins)

on the Internet, and wait for the disk to fill....
