Not sure if this should be networking or storage, please move if need be.
So, I've been wondering about this for a long time. Xbox 360 has the feature to turn on Background Downloads, so that if you are downloading something, but have finished playing or whatever you can shut down the system, but it will continue to download after being powered off (or is it a sort of sleep mode? either way). I was wondering if this is at all possible on a PC?
