MacBook goes to sleep while downloading

Recommended Posts

I've tried searching for a solution for a while.

I used to be able to leave my macbook on while downloading and not have it go to sleep. The display turns off after a while but the download continued. I think this stopped working either when I upgraded to mountain lion or new bittorrent client, I'm not sure.

Can someone help? I don't want to just set the sleep to never. It used to sleep after it finished.

I've never had my mac do that for me but I use an app called "caffeine". You click the icon it puts on your top bar and it will stay for a preset duration. After that the computer will sleep automatically as normal.
