iBook rebooting.

Whenever I try to download a large file and leave my iBook alone it will automatically reboot after about 15 minutes. I have tried everything I could think of in the energy settings but no luck. Anyone have some advice for a new mac user?

What app are you using to download? Are you saying it restarts after fifteen minutes and ends up at the Login Screen or that it falls asleep after fifteen minutes?

I am using transmission. What will happen is that I will let it be, then it will reboot and I will have to login again. It seems like it does it after about 15 min. I have the screen set to rest after about 15 min. but I dont think that would be the problem.

Does it only happen when you're using Transmission? Perhaps try an alternative.
