    I'm downloading a long patch for World of Warcraft, and I want my iMac to stop burning up so much HEAT!! Can I 'half' turn it off or something - so that it keeps downloading but relaxes and cools down?

    you cant sleeping turns off parts like your CPU, hard drive etc. needed to download files.

    just set your iMac to never sleep in Energy Saver and the display to turn off after a certain amount of time (or just press control-shift-eject). download a fan speed app like Fan Control if you want your iMac to keep cool.
