    I've been wondering the same thing, and here is what I do:
    Leave your MacBook, or mac open, and put the brightness to "off"

    Idk why, but I'm guessing u have a MacBook...
    anyway, if somebody has a REAL solution, tell us!

    Once you close the MacBook wifi turns off. If you plug it in and just leave it open, it'll download fine.

    yeahjust leave it open obviously. ive never owned a macbook, im guessing go into preferences and change it so it doesnt go to sleep after a period of time too if its that big of a deal.

    To leave the wifi on you need to change the settings to never go into sleep mode... this will run your battery so plug it in

    It would be great if they had *******s for this kind of stuff.

    Would make it so much easier.
