How can I keep downloads going 24/7
 
I have made the changes in power saver to keep the computer from sleeping so fast. How can I keep from disconnecting from the internet?

It'll drop the connection when it sleeps. If you want downloads going 24/7 you might need to disable sleep mode, but let the display sleep normally.

If you're talking about torrents then try Transmission. It has a setting in it's preferences to stop the mac sleeping while downloads are active.

That way you don't have to mess with your global power settings

Another thing to try is InsomniaX. Its great as all it does is put the screen to sleep when the lid is closed, not the speakers or wireless.
