Hi all! Switcher here (1 month and a half) with some questions about sleep mode. Running OS 10.4.9 on my MBP

1) Is sleep mode automatically engaged by simply closing the cover of my MBP?

2) Can applications be running when I put MBP to sleep? For example if I want to run a download overnight, can I put it to sleep and will the download still be running? Or does all activity suspend until I "wake" it?

3) when my screen goes dim then blank after some period of inactivity, is that just the "screensaver" or is that "sleep" also?

Thanks in advance for the answers. Its taken me some time to adjust to my new Mac (and I still am), but I am glad I made the switch and I haven't looked back since! These forums have been a great source of advice!
