    You can't. Sleep is sleep.
  2. When I have some task like a download or a long file copy going on and I don't want the system to sleep, I open up Control Panel -> Power options and set it to "NoSleep", a power configuration I created which disables sleep mode.

    In sleep mode the computer shuts down the communication card.
    The solution is simple, go to the compunnication cards properties - power managment- and uncheck the "alow the compure to turn off this device" option.
    Your download will keep on coming.

    This does not work. I have tried it and my downloads were canceled after i brought the computer out of sleep.
