    No, you can't shut your iBook and keep the connection.

    You'll just have to leave the iBook open. The screen should shut off but while it's actively downloading something, it shouldn't go to sleep.
    If you're really paranoid, go into System Preferences, Energy Saver and set your iBook never to go to sleep.
