Jfrankfow, welcome to the forum.


When requesting help, you should always include the make/model of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.


You should go into the Control Panel / Power Options and set the Sleep time to a longer amount of time.  The system is not detecting the fact that you are downloading.  I have this situation all of the time.
