Hey all.
I play some games on my computer.
I play this one game where you can just form a stand and sell shit.
But at that point I'm not doing anything with my computer and want to go on my laptop to play guitar with a plug in.
It costs a **** load of energy but sleep mode will shut off internet completely.
I have windows xp home edition.
EDIT:The question is: How do I keep my internet connection going while my computer is in sleep mode?
And for crying out loud when I say sleep mode will shut off my internet completely don't come and tell me I need to play better games.

Sounds absolute wank. Is it Lemonade Tycoon or something?

Is a game where you have to go off and entertain yourself for a while even a game?

No, It's a part of the game.
When I'm in a ****ing stand and try to sell stuff I'm not going to horn up on everything I sell...

That game sounds more boring then going out and working in a coal mine for 46 years and getting black lungs.

It's a ****ing PART of the game, a ****ing PART!
I'm just trying to make some in game money and get better at guitarplaying.

That one part ruins the whole game. Give away all your possessions and become a Buddhist Monk.

You can't. That's missing the point of sleep mode.

Best you can do is turn off your monitor. Or you can turn off extra cpu cores/use software to reduce graphic card voltage if it's a decent one to reduce power.

also: computer thread.
