    When I close the lid of my mac do my torrent downloads, time machine backups, anything progress bars, etc. continue to run?

    Anyway I can make it continue to do so? At least while I'm on power.

    To keep your Mac notebook awake with the lid closed, use InsomniaX or InsomniaT (rebuild for SL) (fix for 2011 MPBs)

    NoSleep also keeps your Mac notebook awake when you close the lid.
