Mavericks issue with Powernap and drone filtering

Wondering how to deal with setting up a drone with the known Powernap issue in Mavericks. My computer restarts at random times after sleeping for a while. Is it just a matter of having Apple Mail boot-up as a login app? This has made it difficult for me to use my home computer as the “mail server”.

Wonder if running an app like Caffeine is a reliable and safe work-around?

Powernap issue on Apple support forums:

Sounds like you would need to prevent your Mac from sleeping, either using the Energy Saver preferences or an app like Caffeine. I would suggest that over making Apple Mail a login item because unexpected restarts can cause file corruption; you should try to avoid them.
