    I have Windows XP installed on my MacBook and am having some trouble. There are certain game files I need to download that will take a few hours, but whenever I close the lid of the MacBook, it goes into standby and stops the download. I use InsomniaX when I'm in OSX to force the Mac to keep running even when I shut the lid, but is there something similar for XP?

    Stupid question, are the settings in XP set to do nothing when the lid is closed?

    Didn't think to look under the Advanced tab in power settings. Works fine now. Thanks!
