sleep interrupts dowload

My HP Pavilion DV4 laptop goes to sleep while in the middle of downloading something, and this interrupts the download.  Is there any way to keep it from going to sleep while downloading something?  Other than telling it to never sleep.

Re: sleep interrupts dowload

Hi,

 

When it sleeps the wireless card may also sleep. Please try (Windows 7)

 

  • Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel" from the Start menu.
  • Click "Device Manager",
  • Extend "Network Adapters",
  • Right-click on your wireless network card and choose "Properties" from the menu
  • Navigate to the "Power Management" tab.
  • Remove the check in the box next to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."
  • Click the "OK" button to confirm the new settings.

Regards.

BH
