Someone mentioned caffeine, but sometimes the command line is more
useful, especially if you run your port commands from a script.
While “pmset noidle” is running the machine is not supposed to go to
sleep. So you could structure your port script along the lines of

You can also use pmset to manipulate the power management settings,
bypassing the System Preferences. See the man page for details.
