Specs: Windows 7
When I try to download movies or music my computer times out and goes to sleep. I then have to start the downloads again. Appreciate any helpful suggestions as I am a PC newbie.

Go Start Menu> Control Panel> Power options. Find the settings there.

It may also be possible to change a setting in the BIOS to wake
on modem or network activity. That should also keep the computer
awake during such activity.

Jeff, that might also leave the computer more vulnerable.
