    Leaving iBook on overnight?
    Hey folks,

    Just a quick question to check if its ok for me to leave my iBook running overnight? I am downloading a few large files and figured it would make more sense for the downloads to commence while the internet is not being used by myself or others, which is when we are sleeping of course.

    If it is ok to do so, is there anything I need to change to stop it from going into sleep or anything? or will it continue downloading whilst in sleep mode?

    It should be perfectly fine, just leave it on a table. Don't leave it on something like a pillow, becuase the pillow will block air- vents. If you are really worried, you can buy a laptop cooling pad, but i really don't think that is neccecary unless it is on ALL the time, everyday.
