    So I'm restoring my iPhone. Connected it to iTunes, clicked restore, and since I have a super slow connection, it said it would take around 3 hours. So I left my computer once I started the process of downloading the 945MB file. For some reason, even though I have InsomniaX installed and enabled, my computer went to sleep. I checked the download and it said "stopped", so I resumed it. The download started all over again.... now I have to wait again for this crap to download. Why does this happen? Is there a way to keep the file from starting over again if the computer goes to sleep? TYIA.

    I've had trouble downloading iOS files through itunes several times before, with errors that looked like yours. I'm not sure how to fix it, but if I were you I would just download the iOS version you need through your browser at www.getios.com and restore using the file.
