Thread: File sharing and idle sleep?
09-23-2008, 04:02 PM #1File sharing and idle sleep?
I am planning on transferring a large amount of files from one Mac running OS 10.4 to one running OS 10.5 via my wireless network using the file-sharing option on both computers. Will turning the file-sharing options on disable idle-sleep for both computers so the transfer can be completed properly? Thanks in advance for your help!

Huh, I guess file-sharing does disable sleep:
"How can I determine what is causing a sleep issue and resolve it?
As mentioned above, these are the most likely causes and solutions for sleep issues:
* Sharing preferences: Enabling sharing for any connections can potentially disable sleep. Turn off file sharing if it's not being used."
