    File 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."
