    So i have read how this works. DO we have any idea if it will work this way. If i close the lid on my mac and i am downloading a Torrent or a file will the download continue or not?

    No, it will not work that way.

    If you are trying to access another Mac on the network, and that Mac is asleep, you would be able to connect to it (if it's all set up for Wake on Demand).

    I'd imagine we'll know more about what it does, and what for once Apple brings in something to utilise it/describes the function a bit more.
