    Hi, Can I
    1. Download for hours on the Mac? (whats the max time I can?)
    2. Leave it on sleep for days? (whats the max time I can?)
    In order not to ruin or burn out anything inside. (or even make less efficient)

    I have an alternative which is my windows Desktop. But I don't want to download my movies there and transfer everyday. So how long can I leave it on/ sleep such that the MBP 13inch isn't harmed in ANY way.

    Thanks.

    Unlimited? I never turn off my MBP and rarely put it to sleep because I forgot to plug it in and ran the battery dry.

    Parts are designed for use. As long as you aren't doing video encoding/gaming every waking hour of the day you can leave it on all the time if you like. Downloading puts almost zero stress on the system, so download away :D
