I have a Powerbook G4 and I want to switch the sleep settings so I can download when I close the screen and carry it around from class to class. I need to stop it from sleeping when I close the screen, so I can take advantage of the schools highspeed wireless connection even more by downloading while I am sitting in class. Where do I go to switch this? I looked around in the settings and couldn't find anything.

Thanks

Check this thread...

Music while powerbook is closed

And USER beware, I don't care if Apple says it is okay and has instructions on how to do it, it doesn't mean it is good for your computer just because they say so.

It may very well overheat your computer.


[mini-lecutre] Also, and nobody here can stop you, I highly doubt your school's wireless network needs people hogging bandwidth by downloading all day long.
I can't see where anything would be that important that a download needs to be continued non-stop while you are in class or even between classes.
It can most certainly wait until after classes are done for the day.
