    I am just wondering if this is a set feature that cannot be changed, or if i overlooked a way to turn it off.

    I have both an iMac G5 and a iBook G3, and when my iMac goes into sleep mode the internet and so forth stays up and running, but when my G3 running the exact same OS (mac os x 10.4.10) goes to sleep, or i close the laptop, any program i have running connected to the internet gets shut down, until i open the lid or bring it back from sleep, where it has the program reconnect to the internet.

    This poses a real problem is i have something downloading on my G3, because if i walk away for more than ten mins and my laptop goes to sleep then it kills the internet and my download gets screwed up.

    I would like to have my G3 work the same way my dads dell does. When you close the lid the screen turns off but the computer runs normally. Aswell, i'd like it to keep programs connected to the internet running while it is sleeping.

    I don't know if this is an energy saver option i overlooked or what, but since i get 6 hours on the high performance setting while just doing regular tasks, i would not be worried about this at all, specially since the times i'd leave it up this way it would be plugged in.

    Thanks.

    I have a G4 ibook and an iMac also. I have it set up so my iMac never sleeps. It just turns off the display. But i do this because i have the iMac running as my Tivo server. The iBook is hard set that way i believe. Meaning when you close the lid it will break the net connection and any other connection. Then saves the state to memory and sleeps. Kinda like windows hibernate but without having to save anything to the HDD.

    If your book goes to sleep while plugged in, why not just set it to not sleep at all while on wall power. Then set the display to sleep at the 10 minutes you spoke of. And if you need to close the lid, just close it till there is about an inch gap. This way you connection will stay active, but the display will sleep.

    I hope this helped.
