    i looked but didnt see anything pertaining to this. im transferring stuff from my pc to my mac by ethernet cable. will my macbook go to sleep if i leave the display open and let it transfer overnight?

    There's a program for Macs called "Caffeine." It keeps your Mac awake until you turn the program off.

    so in other words if i leave my macbook to transfer the files it will sleep even though its transferring? and essentially stopping the file transfer by ethernet cable?

    Cant you go into your settings and tell it to turn off the display after x amount of time and then also select to keep your mac back on always? These settings should be under "when AC power" is used.
