    That's because you're using Limewire. First, you shouldn't discuss that here. Second, you shouldn't be downloading things illegally. If you must download things illegally, you should pick a better client.

    theres nothing ilegal about limewire, only if you download copyrighted material and I dont. besides im not asking for advice on the actual program, its a MBP concern

    Switch your energy preferences to "Never" then change it back after you finish downloading such large files.
