    No. Sleep shuts things like that down, no activity at all.

    Unpossible. If you want to download without the screen, turn off the screen.

    In stock configuration it's not possible.

    What I do is run a program called insomniax. I have turn off the monitor and prevent sleep so I can close the lid and let it keep running tasks like torrent downloads and video conversions.
