    Hello people, at the moment I am currently uploading a video to YouTube and it will take about 2 hours to upload. I was thinking that I should just go to bed and let it upload, but I am aware that if i leave my computer unattended for 15+ minutes it will go to sleep mode. So my question is will the video still be uploading when it "falls asleep?"

    You can set it to not to go sleep from System Preferences > Energy Saver

    uploading a video that takes 2 hours? you need to start compressing your movies - use .mov...high quality but low file size

    With internet activity mine doesn't fall asleep (forget if I set it that way or not)... so your shouldn't fall asleep in the middle of an upload... screen will go black but actively uploading should sleep.... mine doesn't while actively downloading anyways.
