Hi, relatively new to Windows 7 and have never bothered with sleep options before, but I'm wondering if it is possible that it's going to sleep while stuff is still downloading? It appears to be, I have sleep set to 20 minutes, leave at night, return in morning to find my downloads have stopped.

What is Windows' definition of 'idle'? Just no user input? That's pretty annoying if so.

Idle = When the laptop is sleeping.

This means that the laptop will not be running any downloading activities.
