If I want to download something really big, I'll just leave it on to do its thing while I'm at school.

Ditto ... if I wanna download Linux or something ... I just start the download as late as I can - and leave it on and go to bed. When I wake up - it's done.

Nah, probably better than leaving it on all the time! Takes longer when you want to start it up though!
